When can I dispose of tenant's belongings by Confused Agent (Florida) on December 27, 2009 @20:50

Landlords friends move-in to a house with an exchange for painting the house for a couple months withouth a lease. They stayed for 14 months withouth paying rent and withouth painting the house. Finally they move-out 2 months ago, leaving a PODS storage infront iof the house n a deed restricted community and the rest of their belongings outside. A month ago, they finally removed the PODS from public street after HOA complaints and Code Enforcement actions. Now, I have the house listed for Sale as an agent.
My question is: At what point, the Landlord, who never had a lease or verbal lease with a tenant of staying over a year without paying anything, has the right of putting the "Tenants" personal belongings in the trash and change the locks?. For obvious reasons, I do not want to do it, but also need to know if somebody else can do it for the Landlord since they live out of state.

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Landlords in Fl have the right to move all tenants belongings to the curb and change the locks when the sheriff comes to haul out the tenants after the court orders an eviction.
Something your LL friends should have done 13 months ago. Day after the rent check is late, I post a 3 day Pay or Quit. 3 days after that, I file for eviction. Until the judgment, they are off limits.
