Florida 3 Day Notice

What is a Florida 3 Day Notice? In order to have your Florida Tenant removed for non-payment of rent, a Florida 3 Day Notice is required. Per Florida Statute 83.56(3), the Florida 3 Day Notice must contain a statement declaring the amount indebted to the Landlord, the address of the property and demanding payment or possession. The delivery of the written Florida 3 Day Notice is by mail, hand delivery or by posting the notice on the premises if the Tenant is not there. We always recommend taking a picture of the Florida 3 Day Notice if you’re forced to post.

This Florida 3 Day Notice is the first step before the Landlord can file its Florida eviction complaint. If the Florida 3 Day Notice does not contain the amount indebted to the Landlord for use and possession of the property or contain the property address, the Tenant will have a defense, but the Tenant must comply with Florida Statute 83.60(2).

Per 83.60(2), in an action by the Landlord for possession of a dwelling unit, if the Tenant interposes a defense other than payment, including, but not limited to, the defense of a defective Florida 3 Day Notice, the Tenant shall pay into the registry of the court the accrued rent as alleged in the complaint or as determined by the court and the rent that accrues during the pendency of the proceeding, when due.

If the Florida 3 Day Notice is defective, the Landlord must reserve/repost a valid Florida 3 Day Notice to move forward with the eviction suit.
