Lease terminated after three day notice expires.

Asked over 1 year ago - Clearwater, FL

Can I consider the lease terminated and ask for possession once the three day notice expires? My tenant paid money into the bank account on the fifth day, which was Friday afternoon. I just found out today and want to return the money and file the lawsuit for possession.
