Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Florida

As a landlord who has given a tenant a 60 day notice that the lease will not be renewed and they must be out by end of lease term what recourse do I have if they are not out by said time? Can I call the sheriffs and have them removed? Do I have to let them stay if they fight it saying they can't find a new place? Isn't 60 days enough notice?

You would need to evict them assuming you followed the terms of the lease. You cannot get them Sheriff involved until after you file the eviction action and get a final judgment of eviction.

They would be considered a holdover tenant and you could seek eviction, damages and attorney fees.
