The Law Office of Alexander Johnson stands ready to prosecute your tenant evictions in South Florida or to advise you in any Florida landlord tenant matter. Please contact us at 954-779-7050 or email us to discuss your situation and find out how to proceed.
Most of the forms you will need to get started are provided for free on the Landlord Forms page of this site. The forms should, in most cases, be posted on the tenant’s door rather than mailed. If you can not post the form yourself, or do not have someone who can post it for you, give us a call or send an e-mail. We can have your notice posted for you for $50.00
Eviction actions proceed quickly in Florida. In most cases, we can have the tenant out of the property within three weeks. You will have to arrange for someone meet the sheriff at the property to change the locks and remove the tenant’s personal belongings from the premises.
Florida landlord-tenant law provides that the prevailing party is entitled to a judgment for their attorney’s fees and costs.
In order to obtain a money judgment against the tenant you need to serve the tenant personally with the summons. This may require the issuance of additional summons at $55.00 per summons in addition to the possession summons which are posted. Attorney time in pursuit of a money judgment is billed at $250.00 per hour.
In order to start the eviction we need a copy of your lease (if there is one) a copy of the signed and dated notice that was delivered to the tenant, and full payment. We accept checks or paypal.
