Orlando Property Manager Dennis Burgess (Legends Realty) continues his series of Frequently Asked Questions. Today, he discusses an owner-type question.
Evictions stink. They stink for the tenant, stink for the owner, stink for me. I've had a tota of 3 "physical evictions" in my nearly 5 years here in Florida, and I remember each one of them as if they were yesterday. Anyone who thinks there's joy to be found in placing folks' belongings on the curb is sadly mistaken- but it's a reality and responsibility of the cuprent profession I've chosen. br> That said, when a tenant fails to pay rent by the end of the 4th day of a month, I generate and deliver a 3-day statutory notice- commonly known as a "pay and stay" for it allows the tenants said 3 day period to do just that. Most do.
When tenants still don't pay, the next step is for the attorney to file the eviction, with owner's approval. A judge will issue a summons and give the tenants 5 days to respond to it. If they fail to answer the summons, our attorney may then file a motion for default, which is all but automatic in being granted.
The judge will grant the default motion and issue a writ of possession that's forwarded to that particular county's sheriff's department. When ready to serve the writ, a deputy will call me and set atime to meet at the property- where he will enter and be present to keep the peace as I re-gain possession of the property on the owner's behalf. At that time, all property remaining in the vacated home must be carried to the property line or curb.
The entire eviction process time frame varies from county to county. In Orange County here, the time's between 30 and 45 days. In Lake County, I had an eviction done in 25 days. The sooner the better- and the sooner a sad end can transition towards better days.
I'll update this soon and incude information about costs- and about how Legends Realty and our Eviction Protection Program pays the first $700 of eviction costsshould a tenant we place be forced out!
"How do you handle evictions?"
