A Florida 7-day notice to quit for non-compliance grants the tenant a timeframe to address and rectify breached specific lease terms (excluding non-payment of rent) or vacate the rental property.
The legal document outlines the lease violation or non-compliance issue that needs immediate correction within seven days. Common breaches include unauthorized subletting, unauthorized pets, or repeated disturbances. The landlord may initiate eviction proceedings if the tenant fails to remedy the violation.
Governing Law — Florida Statutes 83.56(2).
Notice Types – Florida has two types of this notice, used in the context of landlord-tenant relationships:
- Curable – This notice is given for minor lease breaches like smoking policy violations or making excessive noise, allowing the tenant seven days to fix the issue and avoid eviction.
- Noncurable – The lease is terminated immediately without an opportunity to cure the breach in case of illegal activities or violations repeated in the same year.
