Orlando, FL asked in Landlord - Tenant for Florida

Q: Does landlord have 30 days to MAIL the notice of claim on security deposit? Or should tenant RECEIVE claim in 30 days?

Landord lives in Canada and mailed the notice of claim on the 28th day. I received the claim in Florida the 10th day of the following month.

A: It the law or lease says the landlord has 30 days to notify former tenants of the landlord's claim that means the landlord has 30 days to MAIL it--not 30 days to deliver it. And the law or lease also probably says that you have so many days FROM RECIEPT of the landlord's notice to object.
