What is a 3 Day Notice and is it required for a Florida Eviction?

Chapter 83 of the Florida Statutes details the Eviction process in Florida. When you believe that you have all the requirements for an Eviction, what is the first step? In many cases, the first step is to place a three (3) Day Notice of Eviction, either hand-delivered to the Tenant or placed on the Tenant’s door in a conspicuous place.

A three (3) day notice is provided to a Tenant where there is a verbal contractual agreement or  a written rental agreement. During this three (3) day period, the Tenant has the opportunity to make good and pay past due rent owed to the Landlord. Upon the expiration of the three (3) day notice, if the rent is still outstanding, the Landlord can now file Eviction proceedings in County Court in the County where the property is located.

The three (3) Day Notice is extremely important because it gives the Tenant actual notice that past rent is due and that an Eviction action is forthcoming unless the rent is paid. Further, the notice must state the date the notice was served, a statement saying that the Landlord may pursue legal action and a statement describing how the Tenant was served.

In Florida, the notice is mandatory and an Eviction can potentially be dismissed if the Tenant does not receive service of this notice.  If you are a Landlord looking to Evict a non-paying Tenant, the Law Office of Ryan S.
