ust out of curiosity, how long have you been there before they kicked you out.

How long have you lived there? Florida may have tenants rights laws, whether or not you paid rent is not at issue.  They most likely can't just throw you out but need to go through legal channels and give you 30 - 60 days notice for eviction.  I wouldn't move an inch until I looked researched that.

This is straight from Florida tenant/landlord rights page. 


LANDLORDS CAN'T JUST THROW YOU OUT!


* Only a judge can order you evicted, and only the Sheriff can put you out of your
home! (See "EVICTION" feature)

* Florida law does not allow a landlord to force a tenant out by:

1. Shutting off the utilities or interrupting service, even if the service is in the
landlord's name.
2. Changing the locks or using a device that denies the tenant access.
3. Removing the outside doors, locks, roof, walls or windows (except for
purposes of maintenance, repair or replacement).
4. Removing the tenant's personal property from the dwelling unit unless
action is taken after surrender, abandonment or a lawful eviction.

* A landlord may not evict a tenant solely in retaliation for the tenant
complaining to a governmental agency about a code violation, joining or
establishing a tenant's "union" or similar organization, or asserting other
tenant rights.

* If any of these occur, the tenant may sue for actual and consequential damages
or three month's rent, whichever is greater, plus court costs and attorney's fees.

Even family or friends have to give you so many days before kicking you out . I know here (az) and in OK you had to give 30 days , even if that person was not paying . If you allowed them into your home to stay you couldn't just throw them out .

Not really sure what to tell you.  Was there a reason they gave for you having to leave immediately?  Could you ask to stay through the end of the month while you find a new place?
