 Florida Statues §83.59(d) provides that if the only tenant has died, the rent is unpaid, and sixty days  has elapsed and the landlord has not received a notice of probate, the  landlord automatically recovers possession.   Abandoned property shall be dealt with as per the lease terms or statute.  The law does allow you to execute an abandoned property agreement which would allow you to automatically dispose of the tenant’s belongings.  This must be executed as an addendum to the lease.
