A: All evictions are governed by Florida statutes chapter 83 which is not city or county changed. It’s all the same for city of miami and dade county

A: You need to be more specific on what "time constraints" you're talking about. If you're referring to notice-to-terminate periods, some counties and municipalities extended them due to the Covid crisis, but those extensions no longer exist due to a 2023 change in Fla. Statutes.
