Eviction Attorney in Lighthouse Point Florida
The Eviction Process can be stressful. Not understanding your rights can result in a unfortunate situation for either side. Therefore, it is important that you hire a Firm that represents Landlords and Tenants. If you need an Eviction Attorney in Lighthouse Point Florida, contact the Law Office of Brian P. Kowal, PA.
1. Non-Payment of Rent Evictions
Once a Tenant fails to pay, a Landlord will serve a 3 Day Notice. If they do not pay, they will file the Eviction. As a result, they have 5 days to respond. Accordingly, if they fail to respond, a Default will be entered. On the other hand, if they do respond, we will file a Motion to Strike. However, some Courts will set the case for a Final Hearing. If the Judge rules for the Landlord, a Judgment will be entered. This takes between 4 to 5 weeks.
2. Non-Monetary Evictions
If a Tenant violates a section of the lease that does not pertain rent, we will send them a 7 Day Notice. Examples include:
A. Destruction, damage, or misuse of the landlord’s or other tenants’ property by intentional act.
B. having or permitting unauthorized pets, guests, or vehicles;
C. parking in an unauthorized manner or permitting such parking;
D. failing to keep the premises clean and sanitary.
We will proceed with the Eviction if the Violations are not cured.
This process takes between 4 to 6 weeks.
3. Security Deposit Disputes
83.49(3) requires a Landlord to return the Deposit within 15 days or send a claim to the Tenant within 30 days. Thereafter, they have 15 days to object to the claim. However, if they cannot resolve the dispute, our office will file a Lawsuit against the Tenant. Accordingly, if the Court rules for the Landlord, they will be able to keep it.
4. Termination of Lease Notices
If a Landlord wants to terminate a month-to-month lease, we send a 15 day notice. Accordingly, if they remain in the property, they are a Holdover Tenant. As a result, they can file an Eviction. In addition, they can recover double rent.
