How to Handle 3 Day Notice and Evictions
By Diana Perez, September 11th 2019 -- Hello! I'm Diana Perez with Superior Florida Realty and iManapro.com here in Boca Raton, Florida.
Today I'm going to talk about 3 Day Notices and Evictions.
When you do an eviction or you send a tenant for eviction, you must do it the proper way (which is the legal way).
In this video, I go over how to handle giving 3 Day Notices and Evictions to a tenant of a rental property.
- What is "3 Day Notice"?
- When to give notice of eviction, and reasons to serve 3 Day Notice
- What you need to know before giving 3 day notice of eviction to protect yourself and your assets
Before you place a tenant on eviction to send them a 3 Day Notice. So, what is this three-day notice?
The three-day notice serves a tenant demanding payment for rent. When you do this with three-day notice you exclude weekends and legal holidays in order to be effective. The 3 day notice has to be done correctly because if this is taken to court the judge will look at the three-day notice and accept it and not reject it by having at least one consonant or syllable omitted so it's very important to do the 3 Day Notice Correctly.
There are different reasons why a three-day notice is served to a tenant.
Number one is they don't pay the rent on time. Let's say that the rent is due on the 3rd, 4th or 5th day and they haven't paid their rent and you have a right as a landlord to demand payment because they signed that lease promising to pay and it's a legal and binding contract.
Other reasons why you can serve a 3-day notice are because
-they have broken a rule
-they’re being boisterous
-they have another tenant in the unit that you don't know of
What landlords cannot do is, for example, shut off the water or the electricity or the power. This is totally illegal, and it can have legal consequences when you process the eviction through the court system.
For you to have a successful 3-day notice and eviction, it must be done correctly. This is done by properly taking the necessary steps. If you are a property owner or an investor managing it yourself, you can hire an eviction attorney to do this step for you or you can do it yourself by paying the processing fees in the courthouse.
You can also hire a property manager to do this step for you. That's where we step in.
