The former owner moved to AZ then the couple moved in pretending to be legal renters. The former owner never met the couple but they presented themselves to me as renting tenants of the former owner. What are the forms and procedures required to have these people rejected from the property?
Thank you for the clarification. This is under Florida Statutes Chapter 82 Forcible Entry and Unlawful Detainer. http://www.flsenate.gov/Laws/Statutes/2011/Chapter82/All The action to remove the person(s) is a summary procedure. The remedies created under Chapter 82 are for monetary damages and right of possession. You will file a complaint for Unlawful Detainer.
Let me see if I can find some forms that would be helpful.
Thank you. The unlawful entry may be hard to prove if it relates to forced entry. I would appreciate any type of working forms that will help guide me with the correct approach and words. In the interim, I will pull up Fl chapter 82.. Many thanks!
I have reviewed all of the information you suggested and feel confident that I now possess the basic data and information needed to initiate the correct course of action.
Thanks again; The information provided by JA2 was exactly what I needed. All the required forms have now been filed so I just need to await the courts response. Excellent support. If I need you again, I will initiate the contact. VTU David W.
