Floridian Can't Appeal His Eviction From an Assisted Living Facility By SEO Admin on April 25, 2008

AARP Bulletin (April 2008, Vol. 49, No. 3)

J. Sparaga was evicted from a South Florida assisted living facility in February 2008. Mr. Sparaga was told he was evicted because of his "aggressive behavior." Mr. Sparaga contested the assisted living facility's position. Unfortunately, he had no chance to plead his case. Why not? Because Florida's assisted living facilities can discharge residents for any reason or no reason at all, as long as they provide 45 days notice. Further, residents, who are not covered by landlord-tenant laws, cannot appeal. Legislation in Tallahassee is pending that would require assisted living facilities to give residents a reason for discharging them and set up an appeal process. This law would apply in Brevard County.
