Landlord-Tenant & Evictions

Whether you are a landlord or tenant in a residential or commercial property, it is imperative to retain an experienced real estate lawyer to identify the legal strengths to pursue and weaknesses to avoid in your landlord/tenant disputes.




Landlords, property managers and owners of residential or commercial property can predict that they will encounter problem tenants and problem properties with statistical certainty. At the Law Offices of Jarrett R. Williams, P.A., we represent landlords in a variety of real estate disputes including, but not limited to, the following:


  • Standard Tenant Evictions (Residential and Commercial)
  • Community Association Evictions for Unpaid Assessments
  • Ejectment or Unlawful Detainer of Unauthorized Persons (Squatters Trespassers)
  • Foreclosed Properties (Removing Former Owner or Tenant)
  • Lease Preparation and Review
  • Security Deposits
  • Property Damage
  • Abandonment or Early Termination


The process of removing a tenant/occupant or recovering damages for unpaid rent or property damage has many technicalities that unrepresented landlords/owners may find difficult to navigate. By choosing the Law Offices of Jarrett R. Williams, P.A., you will have a trusted, experienced landlord/tenant attorney guiding you through this difficult and complicated process.


Beware of low-cost eviction “helpers” being advertised as these are non-lawyers charging a small fee to give freely available, basic information and assist in filling out a few forms. Without seeking the advice of a licensed attorney, your landlord/tenant dispute could be exposed to unnecessary delay and/or dismissal in court, which could lead to you having to pay your tenant’s attorney’s fees and costs. It is critical to enlist the services of an experienced landlord-tenant attorney to protect your rights from beginning to end.


At the Law Offices of Jarrett R. Williams, P.A., we offer honest and candid advice to save clients time and money. Disputes may sometimes be resolved with a simple letter written by a knowledgeable attorney, and sometimes they require litigation. Our firm will develop a personalized approach to your situation to determine whether other less expensive means of dispute resolution are available. If litigation is necessary, the Law Offices of Jarrett R. Williams, P.A. will ensure that your landlord rights are zealously advocated.




If you are a tenant renting a commercial or residential property in the State of Florida, you have legal rights to protect yourself from unjust and unwarranted landlord claims brought against you.
