Welcome back,

I appreciate your loyalty and continued patronage. It is my pleasure to answer your questions.

If I move into a rental and do not sign a lease, do I have to give the landlord notice to move out?

Yes, 15 days notice is required. When there is not a written lease, the property is considered to be rented on a month-to-month basis. In Florida 15 days notice is required for either the landlord or the tenant to terminate a month-to-month lease.

Can the landlord put me out without notice?

No he cannot. The landlord must provide 15 days written notice of termination of the month to monthly lease. If you fail to vacate at the end of the 15 day notice period, the landlord cannot put you out. Instead the landlord must file an unlawful detainer action with the court and obtain a court order granting him possession of the property.

I would be glad to continue our conversation and respond to any follow-up questions that you may have.
