The Law Office of Christophe Fiori, PLLC
Property owners depend on payment of rent by tenants for operational costs and payment on costs associated with operating and maintaining the property. When tenants fail to pay rent, or are always late in paying the rent, it disrupts the landlord's business of operating the property and puts the business at risk.

Generally, rent is due on the first day of each month. Landlords and tenants may agree to different terms, preferably in a written lease agreement, making the rent due on a different day of the month. Often times, written rental agreements offer a 'grace period' after the due date before penalties or late fees might be incurred, but the rent due on the due date.
If a tenant does not pay rent when due, then the landlord can serve on the property a 3 Day Notice to Pay or Vacate the property. If the tenant pays the full rent amount due before the expiration of three business days following the posting of a 3 Day Notice, then the landlord must accept the late rent payment, and the landlord cannot evict the tenant. If the tenant fails to pay the full amount of rent owed and 3 full business days have passed then Florida landlord can terminate the rental agreement and evict the tenant from the property by filing a case in court. Florida eviction laws 83.56 provide some guidance on what a proper notice looks like.
If you are a landlord and the reason you want to file an eviction case in court is because the tenant has failed to pay rent according to rental agreement, then you must first deliver to the tenant a 3 Day Notice to Pay or Vacate.
