An ejectment is done when a person is in possession of your property without prior permission and without an agreement to pay rent (and therefore without a landlord/tenant relationship). Compared to the average eviction case, ejectments tend to be more complicated… so they take longer, are more costly, and are more likely to be contested.

Ejectments come up in a few different ways, but the most common situation is when an unknown person moves into a vacant/abandoned property (such as a home in foreclosure) and makes it their home. Once the person establishes the vacant/abandoned property as their residence, the police will generally refuse to remove them from the property as a trespasser.

Since this type of “squatter” case does not involve a landlord/tenant relationship, the County Court does not have jurisdiction to handle this situation as an eviction pursuant to Chapter 83 of the Florida Statutes. Instead, the proper course of action is to file an ejectment in Circuit Court pursuant to Chapter 66 of the Florida Statutes.
