The majority of our eviction cases are uncontested. However, a small percentage do become contested. If your case becomes contested, the amount of work required increases and becomes unpredictable, therefore a litigation deposit will be required and our current hourly rate will apply to all work performed once a case becomes contested. However, don’t worry, we’ve handled hundreds of cases and most contested cases can be resolved with one to two additional hours of work. Your attorney will discuss the best resolution with you, if your case becomes contested.
In Person Consultation
We are able to offer a flat fee for uncontested evictions because the work involved is predictable and a similar amount for many eviction lawsuits. We keep our prices low by processing most evictions via online filing, email, and mail. If this is your first eviction or you need additional guidance with your case beyond the communication included with our flat fee service, we provide in-person consultations by appointment starting at $200.00 for one hour.
Notices starting at $150
3-Day for Non-Payment of Rent, 7-Day Cure Breach of Lease, Non-Renewal of Lease
A properly completed notice is required before most eviction lawsuits can be filed. If you are unfamiliar with Florida’s notice requirements, we can draft and serve your notice for you. Depending on the complexity of the notice, most notices start at $150.00 and are discounted if you purchase a notice with your eviction.
