Asked almost 2 years ago - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I was infomed that I was being evicted for non payment in rent , and I wrote the judge and try to explain my reason and she reply back that I have to pay by 12/27/2012. How is that when I dont make that kind of money ? So I rewrote the judge again and see if there was a better option and that I was leaving by 01/22/2013, to save money to move with me and my kids .how long does it take to evict for commerical resident after deadline ? Is it up too 30 days ? I rent a condo that is privately owned. thank you

    Answered . If you don't pay rent or leave by the date ordered, you will be a holdover tenant and liable to the landlord for double rent.
