How Long Does The Florida Eviction Process Take

As West Palm Beach Eviction Attorneys, we are commonly asked by our Landlord clients “How Long Does The Florida Eviction Process Take”? Although we wish we could provide a definitive answer to this inquiry, we feel comfortable saying that the Eviction Process for Possession for Non-Payment of Rent takes about roughly thirty (30) days, sometimes sooner.

Some of the uncontrollable factors involved for unexpected longer periods of time in the process are the clerk, the judge, and the sheriff being backed-up.

The good news is that Florida Evictions for Non-Payment of Rent are governed under 51.011, of the Florida Statutes, which is called Summary Procedure. This process is an expedited process and expedites the traditional 20-day time frame Defendants have in most lawsuits in Florida to file a response to the Complaint. Specifically, the time frame under Summary Procedure is reduced to the Tenant having only 5-days after service of the Eviction lawsuit to file a response to the Eviction Complaint.
