A common real estate dispute concerns POSSESSION of the property. There are several real estate litigation remedies for recovering physical possession of real property from someone who is on your land or in your house, storefront or warehouse unlawfully, or improperly using it.
TRESPASS --- If someone comes on your land or enters your house (or vehicle) without your permission, this is a trespass and you can call the Sheriff. Trespass is a crime. Trespass after a written warning has been delivered is a more serious crime. Either may result in an arrest and criminal record for the violator.
LANDLORD TENANT LAW -- HOLDOVERS -If someone entered under a lease and breaches the lease or holds over after the lease expires, the owner's remedy is to seek an eviction under Florida's Landlord Tenant law. Evictions can move quickly, especially where damages aren't sought. If it is a residential lease, the landlord's remedy is generally confined to the landlord tenant law. (There are more options with a commercial lease).
UNLAWFUL DETAINER STATUTE -- When someone continues to hold, use or stay in real property after asked to leave, they are 'detaining,' e.g. keeping possession of, your property. This statute provides a 'summary proceeding' (quick) remedy to have them removed. This remedy is for use against squatters, for guests who have overstayed their welcome, Sellers who fail to move out after a real estate closing (it happens!), and to holdovers after a commercial lease expires.
