  1. It sounds like you have received a five day summons, you need to file a legal answer. You need to speak with an attorney and need to get something filed before five days has expired. I handle these matters and offer a free consultation. Thanks

    You can get a free consultation on this matter by calling 407-617-1064. Please understand that the information given is not to be construed as legal advice. More information would be needed in order to make a more accurate legal determination on your matter. Furthermore, an attorney-client relationship does not begin until a retainer agreement has been signed by the attorney and client.


  2. Dear "How do I respond to a 5 day eviction notice?":

    You have five business days to get a response in to the Clerk of Courts.
    And you have to send a copy of the entire response to all other parties (the Plaintiff-landlord or
    the Attorney for the Plaintiff-Landlord).
    You should have received a summons and a complaint, plus exhibits.
    The summons should tell you very explicitly what you have to do.

    You may hire an attorney to respond and i highly recommend it.
    You can also file the response yourself: follow the summons' instructions.
    Good Luck!
