Residential Eviction and Ejectment Services

 

Whether you have just purchased an occupied property or you have been leasing rental units for years, evicting tenants can become a costly and complicated process, if not done correctly. Allow the Choice Legal Group attorneys to simplify the eviction process and assist you in regaining possession of your property.

Hire a Professional:
Only a licensed Florida attorney can handle your eviction actions from beginning to end and provide you with legal advice throughout the pendency of the case. Hiring a non-attorney to help you fill out forms/blank complaints can cost you more money in refilling fees, if done improperly, resulting in a dismissal of your eviction/ejectment actions.

What is an eviction?:
An eviction is the legal process by which a legal title owner regains access and possession of a particular piece of property when the property is being occupied by tenants or contains the personal property of former tenants that exceed $500 in value.

Types of evictions:

  • Non-payment of Rent
  • Non-compliance with the lease provisions
  • Termination by Landlord

Notice Requirements:
Before an eviction complaint can be filed, proper notice to the tenant is required. Notice requirements will differ depending on the type of eviction. Incorrectly drafted and/or served notices to tenants can lead to the dismissal of your eviction action.

What is an ejectment?:
An ejectment is the legal process by which a legal title owner regains access and possession of a particular piece of property when the property is being occupied by someone other than a tenant. The most common scenario is when an individual(s) moves into a vacant piece of property (i.e. squatter).

Some differences between an eviction and an ejectment:

  • The eviction process is generally, but not always, a quicker process to obtain possession of your property.
  • Most evictions can be filed in county court, whereas ejectments are always filed in circuit court.
  • The amount of time that the defendants have to answer the complaint.
  • The complexity of the complaint.
  • Notice requirements.
