Writ of Possession Statutes are Different for Residential & Commercial Evictions

January 2, 2011

In Florida, if and when a Court issues a Final Judgment for Removal of Tenant, the landlord still does not have the right to kick a tenant out of the premises. Once the Final Judgment is entered, (1) the Clerk of the Court needs to issue a Writ of Possession, and (2) the Sheriff needs to enforce the Writ by going over to the Premises to transfer possession back to the landlord.
