New Port Richey, FL asked in Landlord - Tenant for Florida

Q: I am renting a room in a house. One of the other tenants told the house owner that he is moving out in 2 weeks...

this was a month ago and he is still here. can the owner do anything to make him leave soon? (the renter is VERY messy and inconsiderate of the other renters so the sooner the better). no lease agreement was made

A: If there is no written lease, then the duration of the tenancy is based on the frequency with which rent is paid. If it is a month-to-month arrangement, then the landlord can terminate the "tenancy at will" with 15 days notice before the end of the monthly term. An attorney should review all of the particulars to determine the best options.
