I am currently living in a rental home with my lease being up 12/31/2020. My landlord requested I sign a renewal/move out letter 60 days prior to my lease being up. Since 10/8 I have received 13 emails (4 today) and 5 text messages requesting this. I do like where I am currently living, however I... Read more »
Rather than spending several hours looking for current Florida case law to support or undercut this ingenious way to make tenants notify their landlord whether they are staying or not I will just advise you to make up your mind now instead of "stringing them along" and making them very...Read more »
Your landlord is not required by law to furnish A/C. If you had a lease that required him to do so, then he would be. But you don't. You are required to pay your rent whether he fixes the A/C or not. Since you are on a month to month, you can give him 15 days written notice that you are...Read more »
Our landlord picked up rent this month and produced a lease with 1500 per month (it was 1400 prior). We asked for time to think about it and they said yes, take the time you need. Three days later we were out of town getting married and he text asking for the extra set of keys. I stated we were in... Read more »

IF you don't contest it in Court, yes. The judge doesn't know anything except what's put in front of him or her. If you have just received the 3 day notice to pay or vacate, you should leave before an eviction complaint is filed. The mere filing of the complaint is enough to damage...Read more »

Going through eviction proceedings and have a court date for the 21st. I get a call from FPL saying my account is being closed because they’ve been notified I’m moving out and another customer is starting an account at my address.
The landlord never did a walk thru with us prior to moving in. Sh I just handed us the keys after our verbal agreement was made. We communicated the repairs we had to bbn make due to the condition the house was left in by the previous tenant. These repairs ranged from repairs to doors inside from... Read more »

I've lived in same apartment in FL for 7 years. Original lease included the liquidated damages/early termination addendum with a fee of $2400 in case of early termination and says landlord waives other remedy. Each of the last 6 years we signed a simple 1 page extension with new rent amount,... Read more »
Unless one of the seven or eight re-ups change that term the original lease term is still in effect. Wait until you close on the new house then copy the original term and tender the $2,400 along with the copy of the liquidated damage term. Then move out.
One thing you can do is ask your landlord to move you to another apartment. It would be at your expense. I suppose you've already talked to the neighbor, and he's refused to make accommodations for you.
Ok. Your landlord was prohibited from evicting you for the sole reason of nonpayment of rent. Landlords could evict for any other reason. Landlords were never required to renew leases. You dont have a legal issue.
I received a roof assessment of $3,060 early this year from the condo association where I own a condo unit (bought in November 2019). I've been been making payments of $255 each month since March 2020 (already sent $1,530) and decided to stop making payments this month of September due to no... Read more »
Your condo HOA association documents should spell everything out. In all likelihood, they can charge the fees so that the HOA has the money to pay the roofer, rather than start collecting money when the work starts.
Yes, they can. if you are subleasing, the primarily lessor has to be paid their rent. However a 24-hour notice is not sufficient; perhaps they served their lessee previously and the posted notice was just for your benefit.
I have been in the home 8 years and have been paying $85 a month for lawn maintenance and as well have paid for many repairs as Ac and screen enclosure damaged due to past hurricane and the landlord was well aware of it and told me a few times his Repair man will be free to do repairs up to two...

Unless your lease requires him to provide AC, he is not required to fix your AC when it goes out. You have no right to fix things on your own without his written permission and then expect to be reimbursed. Same thing with the lawn. If the lease requires you to maintain the lawn, you have no reason...Read more »

While I cannot advise you what to do or advise what might happen if you do break your lease I will tell you that most cities and counties in Florida have great health departments that tend to situations exactly like this. Give yours a call.
my landlord contacted me stating he has someone coming today for a home inspection, got a knock on the door and it wasn't a inspection at all, it was a woman that was told to come view the home for a potential sale.
What are my rights here in Bradford County FL, can I prohibit the... Read more »
