    Letter to Tenant for non-payment

    What is the name of your state? FL

    Could someone please link me to where I can find a sample letter I can send certified mail to my tenant requesting payment of rent.

    Thanks!

    You need to have the tenant served with a 3 day Notice to Pay or Quit.

    Non-Payment of Rent
    Section 83.56(3), F.S.
    The landlord must serve you, the tenant, a written notice allowing three days (excluding weekends and legal holidays) for you to pay the rent or move from the premises.
    If you do not pay the rent or move, he/she may begin legal action to evict you.

    In order for the landlord to gain payment of rent or possession of the dwelling, he/she must file suit in county court. If the court agrees with the landlord, you will be notified in writing. You then have five days (excluding weekends and legal holidays) to respond – also in writing – to the court. If you do not respond or a judgment is entered against you, the clerk of the county court will issue a “Writ of Possession” to the sheriff who will notify you that eviction will take place in 24 hours.
