Unfortunately, one of the most common headaches of being a landlord is troublesome tenants and the eviction process. A recent random survey at a South Florida homeowners meeting has shown that 3 out of every 10 tenants are undesirable. Chances are that if you own rental properties, you either already have or will eventually deal with problematic tenants. One of the keys to success is to know when to choose eviction and how to carry it out effectively.
A property owner must follow specific rules when carrying out an eviction. We encourage every landlord to become familiar with Florida Statutes Chapter 83 which covers landlord and tenant relationships. If the landlord is prepared to follow the guidelines of this Statute, and has proper legal representation, the process will be less frustrating and much less time consuming.
If you are a South Florida landlord and feel that a tenant eviction may be your best course of action, we invite you to contact our office for a discussion of your situation and how we may be of assistance to you.
