The Florida three (3) day notice to quit, in reference to Section 83.56, is served to a tenant when they have failed to pay their rent in accordance with an established lease/rental agreement. Florida law states that tenants must be given at least three (3) days notice* before the landlord can terminate the rental agreement and file an eviction action in court. If the tenant pays the full rent amount before the end of the notice period, the lease/rental agreement cannot be terminated.
*Weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and legal holidays are not included in notice periods.
