Data on evictions shows that a large number of people are being evicted. In Florida, there are many legal formalities required to evict a tenant. If these formalities are not met, the tenant cannot be evicted and the landlord must pay the cost of the tenant’s lawyer. Whether tenant or landlord, it is important to pay close attention to the legal formalities required, especially since the data indicates that evictions and the need to evict are becoming more common.

Matthew Desmond estimates that 2.3 million evictions were filed in the U.S. in 2016 — a rate of four every minute. “Eviction isn’t just a condition of poverty; it’s a cause of poverty,” he says.
