How long before a landlord can change locks on a tenant space

Saint Petersburg, FL |

I have been paying my rent a few weeks late for the last couple of months for a retail business space. The landlord changed the locks on me without warning. Is this legal?

  1. You need to read your lease. As the space is a commercial property there is pobably a clause in your lease that states when and if the landlord can lock you out.
