You need to contact an attorney and find out if/when title transferred solely to your name. Also, you are going to want to inquire as to whether the current tenants have a lease. There are other complexities that may arise given your situation and it is highly recommended that you seek the counsel of a competent attorney. Florida does not allow for evictions without going through the formal process, so the sooner you begin to get all the facts the sooner you will be able to begin the process. Good luck!

You need to settle the question of ownership/title first.
See the Clerk of Courts with a copy of the Final Judgment and a copy of the latest deed.
If the clerk can't tell you how to get the title transferred into your name, make an appointment
with a real estate attorney to change the title into your name.
Once the title is in your name, then you would contact the tenants and ask for them to communicate with only you from then on. Ask for a copy of the written lease agreement, if there is one.
The tenants may have entered into the lease agreement with the belief that your ex-spouse had the authority to lease the property. You must find out what the lease agreement is and then send a non-renewal notice to the tenants via certified mail.
