How does eviction law work in Florida?

As a tenant, dealing with Florida’s eviction laws can be overwhelming and confusing. Both residential and commercial evictions are governed by Chapter 83 of the Florida Statutes, and although the statute may look simple enough, landlord-tenant disputes can be deceptively complex.

Tenants should have an attorney on their side to help defend the eviction. Having an eviction lawyer represent you can help make sure that the landlord has not made any mistakes, or is not wrongfully evicting you, the tenant. If the landlord does make a mistake, an experienced attorney can usually get the case dismissed and get a judgment against the landlord to reimburse you for attorney’s fees. Alternatively, your attorney may be able to negotiate a settlement that allows you to remain in the property and have the eviction dismissed.
