landlords really need to know

After the landlord serves this Florida 7 Day Notice of Non-Compliance on the renter, the landlord must give the renter seven days to cure the lease violation. If the tenant fails to cure the violation, and it's their first offense within the last twelve months, the landlord must then serve them with the Florida 7 Day Notice to Vacate. After waiting those additional seven days, the landlord can then file in court for an eviction hearing.

If the offense is not curable, or if the tenant has committed other lease violations within the last twelve months, then the landlord can skip this notice and simply serve the Florida 7 Day Notice to Vacate.
