EVICTIONS
 
A landlord may evict a tenant for non-payment of rent or for noncompliance with material provisions of the lease agreement or for failure to maintain the premises in compliance with the statutes.  In order to evict a tenant for non-payment the landlord must first serve the Tenant with a "3-Day Notice" before filing a court case.   The notice must be served by mail or delivery to the Tenant or by posting a copy at the residence.  The notice must comply with the law and must be served properly in order to be effective.  If you are thinking of serving a 3 day notice you should contact Attorney Valentine today to dsicuss the process and the court case that may follow service of the notice.  
 
A landlord may also evict a tenant for the tenant's failure to comply with material provisions of the lease agreement.  In these cases a landlord will have to serve the tenant with a "7 Day Notice".  There are two types of seven day notices, "curable" seven day notices which should be given when the tenant should be given a chance to correct the violation and "non-curable" seven day notices which do not allow the tenant to correct the violation.  These notices are served in the same way that 3 day notices are served, and the full 7 days must expire before you file a court case.  If you have questions about what constitutes non-curable behavior or are thinking of serving a seven day notice then you should contact Attorney Valentine today.
 
A tenant may terminate a lease if the landlord fails to comply with the lease provisions or fails to maintain the premises in compliance with the Florida Statutes.  In order for a tenant to terminate the lease the tenant must give the landlord a 7 day notice that specifies the tenant's intention to terminate and reasons for terminating the lease. If you are a tenant and believe that your landlord may be in violation of your lease or the Florida Statutes, you should contact Attorney Valentine today for your free consultation.
