I paid my rent but the landlord claims I have violated the lease for another reason. What can I do?

Florida Law: A landlord must give a 7-Day Notice before filing an eviction for non-rent reasons.

There are two types of 7-Day Notices:

  1. Notice with Opportunity to Cure. You can resolve the issue. Example: removing unauthorized pets, guests, or vehicles.
  2. Notice with No Opportunity to Cure. You cannot resolve the issue. Example: destroying or damaging the property.

You can defend against eviction for these reasons:

  • You never got the Notice
  • The amount in the Notice was not right
  • The Notice had incorrect dates
  • Claims in the Notice never happened or are wrong
