Why You May Want to Hire a Commercial Evictions Lawyer in Orlando, Florida 

The commercial eviction process can sometimes be more complicated than the process in a non-commercial context.  Why?  When evicting a business that has filed for bankruptcy, a landlord may face legal issues when moving forward with the eviction.  Courts may stop all eviction processes while the business is in the process of bankruptcy.  This can be difficult for a landlord who may need to remove one tenant and rent the property to another commercial tenant.  If you are a landlord and the courts have granted a commercial tenant a stay, you may have certain options under the law, but, the process of evicting a tenant in these circumstances can be complex.  You will want to have your space available to rent as soon as possible.  Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a commercial evictions lawyer in Orlando, Florida who may be able to assist you with evicting a commercial tenant who has filed for bankruptcy.

The Process of Evicting a Commercial Tenant 

You must follow proper procedure when evicting a commercial tenant.  There are several steps you may need to take.  These steps may include providing the commercial tenant formal notice that the rent is past due.  The tenant should be given a timeframe in which to become current on rent.  It may be important to formally serve the tenant notice that rent is past due, and an eviction will take place if rent is not paid in full.  If the commercial tenant offers partial payment, you may want to speak to the commercial evictions attorney at Legal Counsel, P.A. in Orlando, Florida.  In some cases, accepting partial payment could be considered by the courts a forgiveness of the debt. This may lead to longer delays when evicting a tenant.  However, if a tenant needs a temporary forbearance, you may want to consider the costs of finding a new tenant and the costs of having a vacant space.  In some cases, a temporary forbearance may be appropriate.  Though, if you plan to provide your tenant with a forbearance, you may want to document this clearly and in a way that protects your legal rights.  Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a commercial evictions lawyer in Orlando, Florida who may be able to help you with each step in the eviction process.

If the tenant cannot pay the rent in full by the deadline permitted by your notice, then you can begin the formal court process of evicting the tenant.  It can be helpful to have a lawyer by your side helping you with serving the tenant with a proper eviction notice and filing the eviction with the court.  Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a commercial evictions attorney in Orlando, Florida who may be able to assist you.  Have questions?  We have answers.  Contact Legal Counsel, P.A. today at 407.982.4321.

What Are Your Rights if a Commercial Tenant Doesn’t Pay Rent in Orlando, Florida?

If a commercial tenant does not pay rent in Orlando, Florida, there are several ways that you can obtain possession of the property or recover your losses.  What are your options?  Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a commercial evictions lawyer in Orlando, Florida who may be able to help you with this issue.

  • You serve notice that the tenant is late on payments and give the tenant a timeframe to pay past due amounts. In some instances, it may be in both parties’ interests to avoid eviction. The eviction process can be costly and you may have a vacant property for some time until you find a new tenant.  If you have reason to believe that the business could eventually pay rent, your commercial evictions lawyer may be able to help you understand your options when it comes to giving tenants a timeframe to pay rent owed.
  • The tenant may vacate the property. If this happens and rent has not been paid, you may still want to file a formal motion to recover lost rent and file a formal eviction notice.  Doing so formally evicts the tenant, and gives you the right to find a new tenant.
  • If the tenant doesn’t pay rent, you can formally evict the tenant.

These are some of the options you may have if a tenant has not paid rent. Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a commercial evictions attorney in Orlando, Florida who may be able to help you with evicting a tenant from your property.

What is the Process You Must Follow When Evicting a Commercial Tenant in Orlando, Florida?

What is the process for evicting a commercial tenant in Orlando, Florida?  The kind of notices you may be required to provide will depend on your reason for evicting a tenant.  For example, if rent is not paid on time, you can provide a three-day notice to pay.  If a tenant is not in compliance with the lease, you may provide a seven-day notice giving a tenant the option to remedy a situation.

Here are the steps that must be taken:

  • Formal notice must be provided and the correct notice must be provided.
  • Filing an eviction petition with the court. During this time, the tenant may be able to object formally to the eviction.  At this stage, if you fail to follow proper procedure as a landlord, you could face a successful challenge to your eviction.  This is why it helps to have a commercial evictions lawyer review everything.
  • Court Hearing: If the tenant wants to fight the eviction, you may have to appear in court. Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a commercial evictions lawyer in Orlando, Florida who can represent you should you need to fight an eviction in court.

These are some of the steps that must be followed to evict a tenant.  A tenant cannot simply be removed and locks changed without providing proper notice and formalizing the eviction process. Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a commercial evictions lawyer in Orlando, Florida who may be able to help you with every step of this process.  Have questions?  We have answers.
