Eviction Representation

Eviction Lawyers 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.

At Edwards & Edwards, P.A., we have spent years handling landlord/tenant issues, which gives us a special insight regarding how to best remove a tenant from your property. We also understand how to accomplish a fast removal process while complying with all state and federal laws. Every day of non-payment by a tenant is another day of lost revenue, which is why we are ready to get started on your case right away.
