Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, there is no provision in FL law to seal eviction records. The records are public records and they are actually even maintained in private landlord databases. There is no FL law that allows the records to be removed unless they are incorrect or false. Unfortunately, you will have to explain the evictions to any prospective landlord up front and let them know why you were evicted and it is up to the landlord as to whether or not to rent to you, they do not have to deny you because of an eviction and that is landlord's personal preference.
