Eviction Notice? Writ of Possession? 24-hours? Florida Statute 83.62 states that in an action for possession, after the entry of judgment in favor of the Landlord, the clerk shall issue a Writ of Possession, or a writ to the sheriff of the specific Florida county describing the property and and directing the sheriff to place the Landlord in possession of the property after 24 hours notice conspicuously posted on the property. A Writ of Possession cannot be issued without the Judge entering a Judgment in favor of the Landlord for possession.
After the 24-hour period, the sheriff will contact the Landlord or the Landlord’s attorney and schedule a time to meet at the property to ensure that the Tenant has vacated and to remove all of the Tenant’s personal property, if not already done so.
