Lease Terminations And Evictions In Florida
We are well-versed at helping you understand when you can and cannot proceed with evictions. Our lawyers will guide you and help you gather the necessary documentation to protect your residential real estate rights while pursuing an eviction.
Evictions can be complex and timing is everything. The law in Florida is very favorable to landlords who work precisely within the parameters outlined. However, it can be very unforgiving for those who do not. We understand the nuances of the landlord-tenant statutes related to lease terminations and evictions, and we will guide you through the process.
It is always better to resolve your lease disputes quickly and amicably, but when you must proceed with an eviction, we offer low fixed fees for possession actions and flexible rates for damages actions.

It is common for deposit disputes to arise while dealing with the end of the lease term. Our team is experienced at handling disputes related to deposits and when to proceed with formal legal actions.
