A Landlord must give a Tenant a Florida 3 Day Notice prior to filing an Eviction. If they fail to provide it, the case will be dismissed by the Court. In addition, the Landlord may be responsible for Attorney’s Fees. Therefore, if you have questions about the Importance of the Florida 3 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Vacate, contact the Law Office of Brian P. Kowal, PA today.
The Requirements of a 3 Day Notice
1. Tenant owes money to the Landlord for use of the property.
2. Payment must be received within 3 days not including weekends or legal holidays.
3. The date payment is due
4. Landlord’s name, address, and phone number.
Can a 3 Day Notice include Late Fees?
The answer is no, however, there is an exception. If the lease states that they are additional rent, then it is allowed. It is important that they review the lease before they send out the Notice.
How can a Landlord protect themselves against a Tenant that claims they were never served?
The Law Office of Brian P. Kowal recommends that the Landlord use a Certified Process Server to serve the Notice. After they serve it, they provide an Affidavit to the Landlord.
