Eviction Attorney in Pinellas County, Dunedin, Florida

When faced with a non-paying tenant or a tenant that will not comply with the lease agreement the landlord is generally faced with many questions as to how to legally enforce the terms of the lease.

Understanding the terms and conditions of the lease agreement and the Florida Landlord Tenant Act is the first step in analyzing how to proceed forward along with each parties’ legal rights.

There may be alternative ways in dealing with the tenant prior to filing an eviction action. However, at times there may be no other alternative but for the landlord to file the eviction action.

If the landlord is not familiar with filing an eviction action mistakes can be made which may delay the process overall. The eviction process requires certain procedural requirements be met before filing the case.

If these procedural requirements are not met the case may be subject to dismissal costing more time and money overall.

We represent landlords, investors, mobile home park owners, and property managers in residential and commercial evictions for possession of the property and damages claims.
