Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
I am sorry to hear about your situation..
Does daughter agree with giving you the 30 day notice or was this just son in law's idea?
Is there some reason why you feel that they should pay you to leave their home?
Is there any type of written tenancy agreement?
Do you pay them any rent?
Ok, I hate to say it, but if they are both together on this, then they can move to evict you after the 30 day notice expires. Legally if you are living there then you are their tenant under a month to month oral tenancy agreement and they are both your landlords. They can legally terminate your tenancy in FL with only a 15 day written notice, but if they gave you a 30 day, they have to honor it.
If you were unable to move within that 30 days, then they would have to file a formal eviction action in court to get a judgment of eviction and a writ of possession that the sheriff would execute to force you to vacate. That takes about another 3-4 weeks depending on the court's and sheriff's schedules.
It seems like a lousy thing to do, but legally they can do so.
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
I don't mean to be argumentative, but legally you are a tenant. They are tenants to their landlord and you are a tenant to them since they are in legal possession of the property and had you come to live with them.
Did you have any further questions I can help with?
I am sorry that the news isn't better, but I can only relate the law as it stands, not change it..
If they evicted you, then the sheriff would supervise your removal and the removal of all of your personal property to the nearest public area, meaning the curb. So they would have to physically take your property and put it out on the curb if they actually went through with a formal eviction.
Once it is on the curb, it is considered abandoned and the first person to claim it becomes the legal owner.
