A Commercial Landlord Eviction in Broward County, Florida can be a long process. A Landlord that is not represented by an Attorney may encounter delays.
If the Tenant does not file a response, the Landlord will file a Motion for Default. Thereafter, they will file a Motion for Final Default Judgment of Eviction. After the Judge signs the Judgment, they direct the Clerk to sign a Writ of Possession. This informs the Tenant that they must leave the property within 24 hours. Unfortunately for the Landlord, this ideal scenario to remove them does not always occur. It is unlikely that that the Tenant will be able to fight the case once a Writ is issued.
What Happens if the Tenant Files a Response?
If the Tenant responds to the Eviction, the Court will set the matter for hearing. At the hearing, the Judge will order the Landlord to retain an Attorney. This will delay the Process even further. On the other hand, if the Landlord hires an attorney from the beginning, the Process will be much smoother.
