When can I use this notice?
If you are the landlord, you may terminate a month-to-month tenancy by posting a 15 Day Notice of Termination of Month-to-Month Tenancy at the property.
A 15 Day Notice to Terminate is appropriate if there is a written Month-to-Month rental agreement, or if there is an oral rental agreement to pay rent.
If no written lease agreement exists, then Florida eviction law provides that an oral agreement for lease of lands or tenements shall be deemed a 'tenancy at will', and a tenancy at will may be terminated by either the landlord or tenant providing notice of termination of tenancy.
If the rent is due and payable monthly on the same date, and no written lease agreement exists, then the landlord may terminate a Month-to-Month tenancy by providing the tenant with a 15 Day Notice of Termination of Month-to-Month tenancy.
After I deliver a 15 Day Notice of Termination of Month to Month Tenancy, what happens?
If the tenant remains on the property after the expiration of the 15 Day Notice of Termination of Month-to-Month Tenancy, the landlord may file an eviction case in court for possession of their property.
