An eviction is the legal process by which a landlord or property owner seeks to regain possession of a dwelling - be it an apartment, single-family home, condominium unit or townhouse - from a tenant for any of the following reasons: non-payment of rent, non-payment of rent to a condominium or home owner by a tenant of a delinquent unit owner or home owner where the tenant fails to pay rent to the Association after demand, violating of clearly defined rules and regulations or lease terms, and other fees as set forth in the rental agreement between the parties.
If one or more of your tenants in or around the Marco Island/Naples area has fallen behind on rent payments, or has committed a violation of the building or community rules and regulations, we encourage you to call our office for an initial consultation.
A partial list of frequent issues we encounter includes the following:
- Disputes with other residents
- Non-payment of rent
- Noise violations
- Pet violations
- Security deposit disputes
- Violation of lease terms and provisions
Time Is Of The Essence
We work on all eviction-related matters swiftly, keeping our clients apprised of all the material updates of their case. Just like every other scenario that involves the court system, there are strict procedures that must be followed. A few such examples include when and how a tenant must be notified, how a default judgment can be sought if the tenant does not answer a summons, and how a writ of possession can be issued in your favor. Our office would be happy to explain to you all of these steps, as well as outline all of the fees and court costs involved in seeking an eviction of one of your tenants.
