Does a Commercial Landlord have to be represented by an Attorney when Filing an Eviction in Broward County?

A Commercial Landlord does not always need an Attorney in Broward County.  The Commercial Landlord can file the final paperwork if the Tenant does not file a response.  A Writ of Possession is the issued after the Judge signs the Final Default Judgment. The Writ gives the Tenant 24 hours to leave. Regrettably, this ideal scenario to remove the Tenant does not always occur.

If the Tenant responds, the Court will order a hearing. At the hearing, the Judge will allow the Commercial Landlord time to retain an Attorney. Additionally, this delay can be prevented if the Commercial Landlord hires an attorney in the first place.
