You should have been served with process, including notice of a hearing. If you don't remember being served, check with the court and see the return of service. Pursuant to that, you were apparently defaulted.
We've tried since July to get them to send us a signed Lease, but they never answer. They're never available for phone calls and claim were holdover tenants now. They posted an eviction notice this month and said our CDC Declaration doesn't apply. We've called, emailed &... Read more »
Now that you know that they don't want you as a tenant, why would you want to stay? I'd give them notice and move. Its going to cost you more to fight this with an attorney; although consulting a LL/tenant attorney may not be a bad idea.
I would say yes. If the utility is included in the rent payment, the landlord is responsible for paying the utility company. If the tenant fails to pay rent and the landlord fails to pay the utility company thus depriving the tenant of utilities,; that could easily be construed as a self-help...Read more »

A Florida attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. Based on your description, this looks like a difficult and messy situation. If you are able to find resolution through insurance, that might be your most economical route. Even if you retained an attorney to pursue...Read more »

Rather than spending several hours looking for current Florida case law to support or undercut this ingenious way to make tenants notify their landlord whether they are staying or not I will just advise you to make up your mind now instead of "stringing them along" and making them very...Read more »
Your landlord is not required by law to furnish A/C. If you had a lease that required him to do so, then he would be. But you don't. You are required to pay your rent whether he fixes the A/C or not. Since you are on a month to month, you can give him 15 days written notice that you are...Read more »

IF you don't contest it in Court, yes. The judge doesn't know anything except what's put in front of him or her. If you have just received the 3 day notice to pay or vacate, you should leave before an eviction complaint is filed. The mere filing of the complaint is enough to damage...Read more »
