A Three (3) Day Notice is the form used in order to evict a residential tenant that has not paid rent. Under Florida law, residential three day notices cannot include any fees that are not actual rent (i.e., late fees, light bills, water bills, or interest). Furthermore, please note that if the Landlord’s address (for purposes of this three (3) day notice) is in a separate county other than the Tenant’s, or if the Landlord uses a P.O. Box for his or her address or if it is mailed to the Tenant, the Landlord must add five business days to the original three business days of the three (3) day notice. When computing the five business days, you must also exclude weekends and holidays.
In order to fill out the form you will need the following information: Landlord’s name, address, phone number, Tenant’s name, address of the rental property, the monthly rental amount, the total amount owed, and the specific months owed. Please note that if a month is skipped (i.e., the Tenant doesn’t pay January, but pays February) you must apply the payment to the month not paid. Thus, if a Tenant does not pay January but does pay February’s rent, they would still owe February because the payment that was received has to be applied to January’s unpaid rent.
