If you have a legitimate claim and you have a good Central Florida lawyer working for you, it’s likely that you are going to get your tenants evicted, if necessary. If this turns out to be the case, a writ of possession will be served and the tenant will have at minimum, 24-hours to vacate.
The landlord will be required to pay for a Writ of Possession. This is a document that orders the tenant to vacate the property, but the landlord is not responsible for serving this document themselves. The Sheriff’s Department will handle serving those papers, which provides yet another buffer between the landlord and the tenant.
One of the most significant reasons that it’s important to have an attorney working for you in the case of an eviction is that, even at this last stage, the tenant can contest the eviction. They can file an appeal, which could create complications if the eviction was handled improperly from the start.
For landlords, the best possible arrangement is to have a law firm that handles these counties available to them as soon as they start the eviction process:
A qualified Central Florida eviction law firm will be able to ensure that any variation between the counties involved is handled correctly and that the eviction process moves smoothly from start to finish. Having an attorney handle these matters also ensures that, if the tenants turn out to know enough about the law to put up roadblocks to the landlord and to use the courts and the system to create delays, the attorney will know how to deal with those issues and make certain that their client does not fall victim to a tenant who knows just enough to delay the inevitable.
Before a landlord actually engages in a tenancy agreement with anyone, it’s impossible to know how the individual or family will hold up to the obligations of that agreement. When they do not, there is no substitute for having a qualified attorney to assist in an eviction. An eviction attorney ensures that the process is handled correctly, everybody is respected in terms of their rights during that process and that the lease can be terminated as soon as possible.
