Do I Need a Lawyer to Evict a Tenant in Florida?
Eviction lawyers are not technically necessary for the eviction process, but there’s a good reason that so many people choose to work with them. Laws tend to favor tenants, and you can also run into trouble if you don’t know how to approach the situation. For example, you may be sued for trespassing if you attempt to physically notify your tenant and aren’t aware of every rule about when you should be on the premises.
In addition to these considerations, you do need to file a lawsuit to officially evict a tenant who does not leave after a notice, and representing yourself is never advised in any legal case due to poorer outcomes.

What Qualifies as Landlord Trespassing?
Landlord trespassing occurs when a landlord or property owner enters a tenant’s rented premises without proper authorization or notice. It is a violation of the tenant’s privacy rights and may lead to legal consequences. Landlords must follow state laws and lease agreements to ensure respectful entry into the rental property. If you believe your landlord has trespassed, seek legal advice to understand your rights and potential remedies.
What Are the Landlord-Tenant Laws in Florida?
There are many laws surrounding landlord-tenant relationships on both sides. Some of these include:
- Landlord Responsibilities – Your landlord’s responsibilities are dependent on the type of rental unit you are occupying. For all types of residences, a landlord owes you a safe living space and maintenance of important parts of the building such as the roof and plumbing. For apartments, there are further requirements for pest control, garbage disposal, locks, and certain utilities.
- Tenant Responsibilities – Tenants must keep their living spaces clean and sanitary. They also have a responsibility to keep the peace around neighbors, preserve the property owned by the landlord, and use amenities in a reasonable fashion.
