NAPLES — Got a squatter who hasn't paid rent for months? Or maybe you face eviction and need to know your rights.
If you're a landlord or a tenant who needs to learn the law, Collier County Clerk of Circuit Courts Dwight Brock will offer a seminar on Residential Tenant Evictions from 2-4 p.m. Feb. 13.
The class, at South Regional Library, 8065 Lely Cultural Parkway, will offer the basics on state law requirements and the court process, steps a landlord must follow when filing a residential tenant eviction case.
Brock will detail the most common reasons why landlords evict tenants and the role his office plays during evictions. He also will show what resources are available on www.CollierClerk.com, including approved Supreme Court forms, filing fees and information on landlord-tenant rights.
Participants will be allowed to ask questions or describe scenarios about disputes. However, the law bars the clerk from providing legal advice on specific cases.
For more information, call Bob St. Cyr, the clerk's director of community outreach, at 239-252-6879. To sign up, go here: http://bit.ly/cZ78TI
