Differences Between Unlawful Detainers, Evictions, And Ejectments In Florida

In sum, there are three (3) noteable differences between an Unlawful Detainer, an Eviction and an Ejectment in Florida.

Florida Unlawful Detainers- These actions are governed under Chapter 82 of the Florida Statutes and arise when a Property Owner is trying to remove an unauthorized occupant from their Property.  In these types of actions, there is NO landlord-tenant relationship between the parties, there is no exchange of rent for the unauthorized occupant to reside at the Property, and the Property Owner has not provided any writings to the occupant giving the the occupant a certain time period to stay at the Property. These actions are filed in the county court in the county where the Property is located. In a Florida Unlawful Detainer action, the Property Owner is entitled to an expedited and speedy court process called Summary Procedure

Florida Evictions- These actions are governed under Chapter 83 of the Florida Statutes and arise when a landlord-tenant relationship is established between the parties. Here, there is an exchange of Rent between the landlord and the tenant. “Rent” means the periodic payments due the landlord from the tenant for occupancy under a rental agreement and any other payments due the landlord from the tenant as may be designated as rent in a written rental agreement. Eviction actions typically are also filed in the county court in the county where the Property is located.  In Florida, Landlords and Property Managers are entitled to have the expedited and speedy court process called Summary Procedure

Florida Ejectments- These action are governed under Chapter 66 of the Florida Statutes. Ejectment proceedings take place in a Florida Circuit Court in the county of where the real property that is the subject of the dispute is located.  Typically, the Plaintiff sues the Defendant to get back full possession of their real property. What makes a matter an Ejectment is when the Defendant claims or may claim an ownership interest in the property. A typical Ejectment situation would be if the Defendant is claiming ownership by virtue of making all mortgages payments, paying taxes, paying bills, etc.
