Don't get evicted in Florida

What is an eviction ? In Florida,

a landlord can terminate a tenancy early and evict a tenant for a number of different reasons, including

not paying rent, violating the lease or rental agreement, or committing an illegal act. To terminate the tenancy, the landlord must first give the tenant written notice. This notice, called a “writ of possession,” is given to the sheriff. The sheriff then posts this notice on the tenant's rental home. The tenant then has 24 hours to move out. After 24 hours, the sheriff or landlord can forcibly evict the tenant and padlock the door.

In Florida an eviction happens quickly and stays on your record forever. No one will rent to someone with an eviction. Why? An eviction i

n plain and simple language is when you don't pay your rent the landlord says you must pay in 3 days or move. If someone chooses NOT to move or pay rent they are saying... "I am not going to pay the rent and I am not moving, so make me. An eviction MAKES them move as ordered by a County Judge and enforced by the Sheriffs Department.

Why is an eviction on your record such a big deal? It says that you are not a person of your word, it says you are not willing to abide by the terms of the lease that you agreed to. It says that not only are you not willing to pay the rent, but you are also not willing to move and vacate the property.

NO LANDLORD wants to evict and no landlord wants to have to deal with this so they DO NOT RENT TO THEM.

At Pensacola Rentals - We DO NOT rent to folks who have an eviction on their record. We are willing to NOT PERFORM A CREDIT CHECK so you can have any credit score BUT we can not overlook an eviction.
