Am i still protected under tenant landlord rights/laws if the property owner fires management company?

More information is needed to fully respond, therefore, I recommend you consult with a local attorney to review your lease and all the facts. In general, if the management company had a valid management contract with the owner of the property when the management company leased the house to you, then your lease is valid and binding on the property owner regardless of whether the owner subsequently fired the management company. Also, in Florida no landlord can engage in "self-help" to remove a tenant and must file an appropriate lawsuit to remove all tenants. The threatening email sounds as though the owner is attempting to engage in self-help. The fact that you have a lease agreement would also preclude any argument that you are trespassing and, if called, the police have no jurisdiction to remove you from the house.
