An Ejectment action is controlled by Chapter 66 of the Florida Statutes. Due to its complexity of this type of cause of action, an Ejectment action does not have the benefit of a summary procedure. A summary procedure essentially expedites the case for a quick resolution. An Ejectment suit is likely to become litigated and therefore take time to complete. The party seeing ejectment must “deraign” (prove) that they have valid title to the subject premises in the complaint. The difference between an unlawful detainer and an ejectment is that in an ejectment action, the party being ejected is claiming some right, interest, or title to the property. An ejectment action must be filed in circuit court as opposed to an unlawful detainer which is filed in county court.

Furthermore, ejectment actions often involve circumstances where there is some underlying dispute related to the occupants’ position; that they have some sort of entitlement to possession of the premises. For example, ejectment may be appropriate where a new homeowner purchases a property at a foreclosure sale, and the occupants of the property are the previous owners. An ejectment would likely be permissible in this situation where a person, for one reason or another, claims a legal right to possession of the premises; however, that possession does not come from a landlord-tenant relationship.
