Important Information Regarding 3 Day Notice Requirements

To file an eviction in the state of Florida, you must have served a Three Day Notice first. If you have not done so, please go to our Free Notices page and download one. If you have, please make sure the notice you served complies with these requirements before proceeding:

1.) You did NOT include any money other than rent in the amount owed.

2.) You used complete addresses on the notice (including your address and the tenant’s address.) This includes street name, zip code and apartment number if there is one.

3.) You listed the correct county the property is located in.

4.) You provided your tenants three days to pay rent (not including date of delivery or weekends or legal holidays.

5.) If you used an out of county address for your address, you gave an extra five days to pay rent (on top of the original three days) giving your tenant eight days to pay in the notice.

6.) If you used a P.O. Box for your address, you gave an extra five days to pay rent (on top of the original three days) giving your tenant eight days to pay in the notice.

7.) You completed the “Certificate of Service” at the bottom of the notice or if your notice doesn’t have one, filled out when and how the notice was served.

8.) Your notice is no more than 30 days old.

9.) Your notice is currently expired or expires within 24 hours. (We legally cannot file a case until the three days have expired.)


Some judges will dismiss your case if your notice does not comply with this list. Evictions Plus is not responsible for defects in your paperwork, and by continuing on you acknowledge this. If all of these requirements are met, please continue on to:
