How is a Florida residential 3 Day notice properly delivered in Florida? The beauty of this question is that there is a Florida Statute directly on point.
Pursuant to Florida Statute 83.56(4), the delivery of the Florida 3 Day Notice “shall be by mailing or delivery of a true copy thereof or, if the tenant is absent from the premises, by leaving a copy thereof at the residence.”
In essence, the Florida 3 Day Notice can be mailed, hand-delivered or posted on the property. If service is defective, the Florida Landlord would have to correct service and potentially amend the Florida 3 Day Notice which in turns slows down the usual expedited process of the Florida residential eviction. If the Lease states that the notice requirements are waived, this is a defective clause in the Lease as the notice requirements cannot be waived.
The method of delivery is just as important as preparing a correct Florida 3 Day Notice. It is important to ensure that all aspects of the Florida Eviction are accurate/correct to prevent hiccups or errors.
