These landlord-tenant forms have been approved by the Florida Supreme Court. As law is continually changing, there is no guarantee that these forms comport with current law. These forms are not a substitute for the advice of an attorney. It is always best to consult an attorney about your legal rights and responsibilities in your particular case. For more information, go to FloridaLawHelp.org, Florida’s statewide legal aid website.
Help for Landlord/Tenant Matters
Jacksonville Area Legal Aid has created a guided interview tutorial to help tenants create an eviction response. Make sure to have your court papers ready. The tutorial is offered as a service; it is not legal advice and no attorney-client relationship is created. This guided help is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney and the form(s) generated have not been reviewed by the Court nor The Florida Bar for accuracy. It is always best to consult an attorney about your legal rights and responsibilities in your particular case.
A guided do-it-yourself procedure for completing and filing forms needed in simplified landlord/tenant matters, aimed at helping both litigants who are representing themselves (“pro se”) and pro bono lawyers who don’t normally practice in that area, has been added to the court system’s statewide e-filing portal.
For additional information, refer to Chapter 83 of the Florida Statutes.
