The Florida 15-day notice to quit is used by landlords to terminate a month-to-month tenancy without cause. Once delivered, this notice allows the tenant fifteen (15) days to vacate the premises. The landlord does not need a reason to end a month-to-month tenancy as long as this notice form is served upon the tenant. If the tenant refuses to leave the property, the landlord has a legal right to file an eviction suit against them.
