Careful drafting of a real property contract, clear understanding of its terms, and observance of the time requirements of the contract, can help avoid misunderstandings and disputes in connection with the purchase or sale of real property.

Most evictions involving residential property are based on nonpayment of rent. The giving of a three-day notice demanding payment of the past due rent or possession of the property is a non-waivable requirement of Florida law. It is important that the notice comply with the statutory requirements. If the tenant does not vacate the property after receipt of a three-day notice, the landlord must to bring an eviction action. If the eviction is successful, a writ of possession will be issued by the clerk’s office and served by the sheriff’s office. Some landlord’s handle evictions on their own (pro se), while others make use of the services of an attorney.
