This time period depends on your written lease, if there is no written lease and the tenancy is month to month, generally by 15 days before the end of the month. Chapter 83.03 Florida Statutes will give you a list based on the tenancy.
The written lease will typically say. Otherwise if not in a written lease, per statute:
83.03 Termination of tenancy at will; length of notice.—A tenancy at will may be terminated by either party giving notice as follows:
(1) Where the tenancy is from year to year, by giving not less than 3 months’ notice prior to the end of any annual period;
(2) Where the tenancy is from quarter to quarter, by giving not less than 45 days’ notice prior to the end of any quarter;
(3) Where the tenancy is from month to month, by giving not less than 15 days’ notice prior to the end of any monthly period; and
