We Help Protect Your Investment
We strive to provide the most effective and efficient residential and commercial tenant eviction legal services available.
One of our practice areas is landlord-tenant evictions. The Eviction Department is supervised by attorney Kevin H. Fabrikant. We perform tenant evictions for large apartment complexes, real estate managers, and for individual landlords. Tenants who do not pay rent cause huge financial strains upon landlords. Furthermore, tenants who breach lease agreements for any other reason can cause substantial problems for landlords as well as other tenants on the property. Thus, our goal is to promptly remove those tenants not complying with their leases. We accomplish our goal by being extremely time conscious and meticulously following legal eviction procedures, while at the same time offering an affordable fee to our clients. Experience with tenant eviction procedures, dedication to our clients and conscientious efficiency is how we are able to meet our goal of completing each eviction case within 30 days.

We try to charge flat fees for the eviction services we perform for our client throughout the entire eviction case. We start with the initial flat fee for the eviction of $425. We are able to charge such a low fee because we have processed thousands of eviction and learned how to streamline the process to perform the eviction efficiently and timely. Additional fees may apply, ask us for details.
We help you keep updated through the use of our Weekly Summary Reports. Once a week, typically on Fridays, we issue a case status report that details the eviction case’s progress and what is pending and the next steps we plan on taking. We also send regular notifications to our clients as the case progresses that detail what has occurred and whether the landlord or property manager needs to take some action to assist us in the eviction case.
We process tenant evictions throughout Florida. We have multiple office locations with our main office in Broward County, conveniently situated in Hollywood. Most of our clients hire us through email or the telephone. Clients are also welcome to come into the office or make an appointment at one of the other locations. Sometimes we do meeting via online video systems for convenience. Our familiarity with the courts throughout Florida enables us to efficiently and effectively process eviction cases in all Counties and therefore provide a reliable service for our clients.
Our goal is to complete each eviction case within 30 days. We know that losing time can mean losing a lot of money and maybe even placing the property at risk. We adhere to strict timelines for internal office procedures to work to achieve our goal. It is not an easy task because different County courthouses have different procedures to process cases. And the judges are each able to have procedures they want followed, which are not all the same. But we maintain our commitment to conclude each case as quickly as possible.
KEEPING TENANT SECURITY DEPOSITS
A security deposit is held by a landlord as security for the tenant’s complete performance under the lease. After the tenant vacates, the landlord should do a walk-through of the property with the then-former tenant present. Any damages to the property should be noted on a move-out form. Taking pictures of damages can also prove useful later. Then, the landlord can perform an accounting of damages caused to the property beyond reasonable wear and tear, unless the lease has other provisions regarding damages. And an accounting of any sums that should have been paid by the tenant but which remain outstanding should be performed.
The landlord then has limited time to properly serve documents upon the former tenant in order to keep the security deposit and apply it against money the former tenant owes for damages and rent or other money owed to the landlord. Proper procedures must be followed, or the landlord may forfeit the right to keep the security deposit.

USING TENANTS' PROPERTY AS SECURITY FOR RENT DUE
Commercial tenants place their personal property onto the leased premises. This includes things like inventory, equipment, and supplies. The landlord is, by law, granted a lien on the tenants’ personal property. The landlord can enforce this lien right by stopping tenants from removing their personal property from the rental premises. A Distress Writ is a legal mechanism to prevent tenants from taking their property out in a midnight rush to abandon the premises and try not to pay rent owed.
Our firm can seek issuance of Distress Writs for commercial landlords.
LANDLORDS HAVE AUTOMATIC LIENS ON TENANT PROPERTY
Florida law grants landlords in commercial properties the right to assert a statutory lien on all of the personal property the tenant brings onto the premises. The lease may also allow for a consent or contractual lien on tenant property. The landlord can take steps to enforce the lien, by retaining the property of the tenant and by foreclosure of the lien.

LAWSUITS AGAINST LEASE GUARANTORS
A guarantor to a lease is a person or company that promises to pay money that the tenant fails to pay. Enforcement of lease guarantees involves compelling the guarantor to be notified of the tenants’ default, and a demand for payment. Otherwise, a lawsuit against the guarantor may be required. The defenses a guarantor can raise against the landlord’s lawsuit to enforce the guarantee are usually quite limited, making enforcement of the guarantee more likely to succeed. A transfer of the leased property could have an effect on the guarantee.

OTHER LANDLORD MATTERS
We help residential and commercial property landlords with evictions and many more landlord matters. Find the information below and much more at our help center.
Late yesterday, Florida Governor Desantis entered another executive order that extends the hold on residential evictions for nonpayment of rent until 12:01 am July 1, 2020.
In a short answer, yes Eviction cases are still being processed. A lot of information has been put out recently regarding the Coronavirus and changes to court procedures both locally and nationally.
Renting stores or office spaces that are in areas where zoning laws are strictly enforced are challenging to get. Usually, these leasing agreements have many requirements such as excellent credit scores and many other stipulations having commercial landlords and commercial tenants agreeing to each other terms and conditions to finally lease the unit.
COVID 19 STATUS:
The former CARES Act expired and has not had an effect on evictions in Florida since then. The CDC Order staying residential evictions when a tenant meets certain requirements is set to end July 31st, 2021. This order has been extended several times in the past but it is expected to not be extended further. However we typically have not been advised of any extensions of the Order until the day prior to it’s expiring. Check back with us for more updates. Note that our law firm has been continuously processing eviction that are not subject to the CDC Order. You can contact us for more information.
