Eviction is never a preferred option, but sometimes it's the only alternative. I found this excellent video that explains the eviction process. It's good information for tenants and owners to understand.
Some tips for tenants, if you are unable to pay your rent on time, call and advise you will be late. If there is no communication and three days pass after the rent is due, you will receive a three day notice.
The Three-Day Notice is a condition precedent and jurisdictionally required notice which must be given in a non-payment of rent situation in order for the landlord to proceed to filing an eviction action. It is a very specific notice, clearly spelled out in Florida Statutes, must be of a certain form, with specific rent items only allowed, and it must be prepared and served properly in order for it to be a valid Three-Day Notice.
At Showcase Property Management, we do our very best to place credible tenants, but life happens and unfortunately we are forced to file an eviction.
I have dealt with tenants in the past who thought they could prolong the eviction process and remain in a property without paying rent. This is NOT the case.
Eviction is the last resort, we don't want to place people out of their homes, but sometimes there's just no other option.
