A Three (3) Day Notice must be served before filing an eviction lawsuit for non-payment of rent. This notice gives the tenants three days to pay the rent owed or leave. More information on how the process works and how long it takes: Florida Eviction Process
Three Day Notice To Pay Rent or Deliver Possession
A Quick Video Overview of How to Fill Out and Deliver the Notice
How to Calculate the 3-Day Notice
Count three days from the delivery of the notice. Don’t include Saturday, Sunday, and Legal Holidays. Don’t include the day of delivery of the notice.
For example, if you deliver the notice on Friday, the tenant has until Wednesday to pay the rent (if there are no legal holidays).
If you deliver on Monday, the tenant has until Thursday to pay. You can file for eviction the next day.
If you don’t want to deliver the notice yourself, find a Process Server to deliver it for you.
Florida Law: How to Deliver the Notice
(4) The delivery of the written notices required by subsections (1), (2), and (3) shall be by mailing or delivery of a true copy thereof or, if the tenant is absent from the premises, by leaving a copy thereof at the residence. The notice requirements of subsections (1), (2), and (3) may not be waived in the lease.CHAPTER 83
