    Eviction for non-payment in Florida is governed by FS Chapter 83.56 which says:

    The landlord must the tenant a written notice allowing three days (excluding weekends and legal holidays) to pay the rent or move from the premises. If rent isn't paid you may begin legal action to evict. File suit in county court. The tenant needs to be notified in writing and they get 5 days to respond in writing to the court. If they don't, you win the judgement along with a "writ of possession" that goes to the sheriff. The sheriff's office then typically gives the boot within 24 hours.

    Playing games and doing stuff like taking out the furniture isn't recommended. You only give them ammo to say things like - "well, we got the money to pay, but we refused to give an amount since they took out all the furniture". Eviction is NOT a "make the customer miserable until they move" process and can often result in the court doing unkind things to YOU! There's a legal process to get unpaying guests out - use that process, and ONLY that process to keep from opening yourself or your employer to potential law suits.
