I highly recommend you consult w/ a real estate attorney and/or review Florida landlord tenant act. Despite what may seem to be the logical action to take both landlords and tenants have rights. One party violating the rights of another can be held liable in a court of law.

I'm a landlord to multiple number of houses, since 1987.

Legally, you HAVE to follow the Eviction process in the county the property is located; otherwise you are going to be sued, rightfully so and you will have no defense:(

The good news: in FL you can finish the process within 4 weeks (on average) at a cost of about $600-800 (if you hire a pro); In NY, for example, it may take up to a year, and you will need an attorney, for sure:(

Viva FL!
