West Palm Beach, FL asked in Landlord - Tenant for Florida

Q: Is it right for a landlord to not give you a proper notice to move

My landlord gave me a notice to move on February 12th and wants me out by February 28th. The month of February was paid before the notice and if i dont move he will take 250 dollars ans keep it for march rent. If im not out by the 15th of march he will take another 250 dollars he owes me and keep plus give my security deposit to the person that is buying the house which is 900.

A: Unless you have a written lease that extends beyond February 28, your landlord is obeying Florida law.
