Evictions (Residential and Commercial)
An eviction proceeding involves the removal of a tenant from rental property owned by a landlord. The property can be either residential property (as in a single family home, a condominium unit, or an apartment) or commercial property (as in an office, warehouse, retail outlet, industrial space, or some other commercial space).
There are several reasons that a landlord may legally evict a tenant. The most common reason is for failure to pay rent when owed. Other legal reasons for evicting a tenant (depending on the content of the lease agreement) involve noise violations, disruptive odors, pet violations and other violation of lease provisions.
The eviction process in Florida can be complicated, especially for a layperson.
Our Tampa eviction attorneys are skilled in the process of evicting a tenant.

Frequently Asked Questions about Evictions
Most, if not all, eviction proceedings in the State of Florida start with the issuance of a three day notice. Our Tampa eviction attorneys and Tampa real estate attorneys recognize that it is extremely important that the notice is issued in accordance with the Florida Statutes. Failure to abide by the Florida Statutes could cause unnecessary and unwanted delay.
Accepting partial payments from a tenant in default can drastically affect a landlord's ability to evict a tenant, and reclaim the landlord's property. Our Tampa eviction attorneys and Tampa real estate attorneys counsel landlords to be extremely cautious in accepting a tenant's late or partial payment, as the short term gain could lead to long term consequences.
The Florida Statutes govern the handling of security deposits by landlords and provide for specific procedures to follow in asserting a claim against a tenant's security deposit. Our Tampa eviction attorneys and Tampa real estate attorneys understand that the applicable statutes provide strict rules governing security deposits for residential landlords.
The Florida legislature has given a great deal of power to condo and homeowner associations with respect to residential properties in foreclosure. Our Tampa eviction attorneys and Tampa real estate attorneys know that associations now have the right to demand that their association dues be paid directly by a tenant when the landlord has defaulted on its obligation to pay its monthly association dues.
A tenant must continue to timely pay its periodic rental obligations, despite the fact its landlord is in foreclosure. Our Tampa eviction attorneys and Tampa real estate attorneys understand that if a foreclosure sale occurs and a certificate of title is issued to a new owner of the subject property, the tenant is protected by the terms of its existing written lease up to at least ninety days, provided the tenant abides by its terms.
