Commercial Landlord Tenant Dispute

Commercial Landlord Tenant Dispute


​Commercial Landlord-Tenant Attorney in Florida

Unlawful Detainer (Eviction) Lawyer for Business / Commercial

Florida Commercial lease regulations are complicated and differ significantly from residential lease laws, particularly when it comes to evictions. Unfortunately, because of their expertise with residential law, many firms and business owners often make decisions based on what they think to be the law. This can result in a costly error, putting their business and property at risk in a legal battle.

In commercial landlord-tenant disputes, FL Business Litigation represents landlords. We support landlords when tenants fail to perform their lease covenants, such as;

  • refusing to maintain the property in an acceptable state,
  • failing to complete tenant improvements,
  • and failing to pay rent on time.

The unlawful detainer process when evicting those with no right to be in the property, those that are not paying rent, and there is no ease or rental agreement, and no landlord/tenant relationship is another trap for the unwary. Again, minor procedural errors can result in a decision in favor of the “tenant”.
