Eviction Lawyers for Landlords in Jacksonville
The residential eviction process in Florida requires careful compliance with state laws. Attempting to remove a tenant through extralegal means (e.g. changing the locks or removing the tenant’s belongings) is considered a “self-help” eviction, and it is illegal.
Additionally, the statutes governing the removal of a tenant in Florida are very specific. If the eviction process is not done correctly—even regarding the pre-eviction notices—the landlord or property manager could easily become liable for wrongful eviction and may need to pay thousands of dollars in penalties and damages.
