___Sign this document. This document needs to be signed by:
___Everyone gets a copy. Anyone named in the document should receive a copy of the signed document. Each tenant must receive their own copy of the eviction notice.
___Serve the document. Deliver the notice in person to the tenant, or, if the tenant is not at home, leave a copy in plain view at the property. Additionally, if the tenant is not at home, mail a copy of the notice to the tenant's address. When the document is served, check one of the lines to state whether it was hand-delivered to the tenant, mailed to the tenant, or posted at the property.
You may never forcibly evict a tenant without going through the formal tenant eviction process.
Once you give notice to the tenant, you must wait until the notice period is over to see if the tenant does what the notice asks within the time allowed. If the tenant does not comply, you can file an eviction lawsuit in County Court to evict the tenant. If the tenant does what the notice requires (like pay past due rent in full), then you cannot file an eviction lawsuit. If the notice is not correctable, such as Notice to Terminate Tenancy, you can file an eviction lawsuit in County Court when the notice period ends.
If you end up having to file a formal eviction case, make sure you file your eviction case in the right County Court. Florida is broken up by county, and you must file your case in the correct county. You can usually figure out where to file by doing some research on your state's website.
