    This is handled under the Florida Landlord Tenant Act for Residential Tenancies. You should get an attorney to make sure you handle it right, plus if your roomate ignores the notices you will need to file an eviction suit and follow through with that in order to have him thrown out. It isn't as complex or expensive as it sounds, you should be able to get an attorney to help you with it. Good luck.
