Florida Legal Services for Landlords and Tenants
If you are a Tenant or a Landlord and need to terminate your month to month lease, you must give 15 days or more notice prior to the end of any month. If you give less than 15 days, the notice will not be valid, and the lease will not be terminated. If you are a Landlord and give 15 days or more notice to the Tenant that the lease will be terminated at the end of the month and the Tenant refuses to leave, you have the right to evict the Tenant. The eviction process can be frustrating as many Landlords and Tenants fail to comply with this notice. The benefit of giving this type of notice is that both Landlords and Tenants will have a difficult time fighting the Eviction in Court as the Law clearly gives both Landlords and Tenants the authority to terminate the lease.

Changing Rent or Other Terms
As a landlord, you may wish to terminate a lease in order to bring in a new tenant with new rental terms or an increased rental price. In Florida, this is not always necessary, as there is no statute concerning a notice period.
In effect, this means that you could change the rent or terms today and have them take effect for the next monthly cycle. If the tenant is happy with the terms and price increase, then you can continue with a new agreement from month to month.
The tenant has no obligation to accept the new terms and may choose to vacate the property and end the month to month lease agreement. A tenant may not dispute the new terms legally, as it is within your rights as a landlord to make these changes.
If a tenant refuses to agree to the new terms and will not vacate, you may begin eviction proceedings. If you need support and legal representation throughout this process, the team at the Law Office of Brian Kowal, P.A. can help.
