Are you a landlord? Do you have commercial tenants? If so, you know one thing to be true: You expect these people to pay in full and on time every month.

While most companies are good at paying their rent on time, there are some that continually slip behind. In this case, you need to decide what you want to do.

On one side of things, you can hope that the company makes the changes necessary to avoid the same issue in the future. Conversely, if you’ve already given them enough opportunities, it may be time to move forward with the eviction process.

If a tenant is not paying his or her rent or if a tenant is going out of business for any reason, you have a variety of legal remedies available to you. For example, there are legal protections outlined in Chapter 83 of the Florida Statutes.

Your goal is simple: to take the steps necessary to collect the money that is due to you. Even if a company goes out of business, you still want to look into your options for collecting payment.

At our law firm, we’ve helped many commercial landlords facing this challenging situation.

You hope that your tenants always pay their rent in full. You also hope that they do so on time every month. Unfortunately, you know in the back of your mind that this may not always happen. We can help.

If for any reason you need to look into the eviction process, you should learn more about what you can and cannot do, as well as the steps that your tenant may take.
