FLORIDA'S LANDLORD/TENANT LAW

 

Questions concerning landlord/tenant rights are one of the top five areas of inquiry at the City's Consumer Affairs Division. Most people living in leased apartments and other rental housing know that there are laws dealing with landlord/tenant relationships; but they often don't find out the details until there is a problem.

It might be beneficial for you to consult an attorney about your landlord tenant rights, duties, and responsibilities. Some of the areas in which most people tend to have questions or concerns in are:

  • INFORMATION BEFORE YOU RENT: Taking Precautions to avoid legal problems.


* Although Florida law does not require a written lease, you should request a
written lease that clearly states all the terms. Oral leases are subject to misunder-
standings and are more difficult to enforce.

* Before signing a rental agreement makes sure you understand the terms of the
contract. If you don't understand, don't sign the lease!!! There is NO required
grace period for canceling leases, so if you sign, you are bound to the agreement.

* Before signing a rental agreement always conduct a preliminary walk-through in
the actual premises you intend to rent, so as to identify any problems that should
be fixed before you rent. Verbal promises made by the landlord to fix the
identified problems, should be included or attached as a written agreement to the
lease, and signed by the landlord.
 
 

  • THE LANDLORD'S RESPONSIBILITIES: As the landlord, Florida Statutes requires you to take certain actions on your property in order to rent the property.

    * Florida Statutes, 
    F.S. 83.51 , require a landlord to comply with the local
    Property Maintenance Code.

 

  • YOU SHOULD CONTACT US IF:
    IF THE LANDLORD DOES NOT COMPLY: As the tenant you have rights.

     
      * Your landlord has failed to comply with the previous listed code,
    and has ignored your request to undo their unlawful action, you can take legal action.


* Your landlord fails to do what the law or lease requires, you may be able to
withhold the rent.
 

  • RENT WITHHOLDING FROM LANDLORD

    * You must be very careful to do what the law requires for a proper rent
    withholding.

If your landlord will not fix a condition which is in "material non-compliance"
with the your local city or county property maintenance code, you may stop paying rent
(rent withholding). Material non-compliance means that there are major
problems in your house or apartment which your landlord refuses to fix.

* Under Florida law, you cannot do the repairs yourself and then deduct that cost
from your rent.

* You can do a rent withholding. Please contact us for further advice.

  • THE TENANT'S RESPONSIBILITIES: You have rules to follow as well.

    * Florida Statutes, F.S. 83.52, require a tenant to comply with the local
    Property Maintenance Code.
