No, the people do not know what they are talking about. What they may be trying to reference is "Adverse Possession", you can look this up, but this is not applicable to your circumstances because you have just been a renter, paying rent. If you have a lease or rental agreement, you...Read more »

The roof in my bedroom fell on me 3 weeks after I moved into the property. Landlord is refusing to make any attempts to repair it. I've rented this property for almost 1 year and have had a damaged roof for 11 months. I called code enforcement November 2020 and during their inspection they... Read more »
The landlord is trying to evict us even though we are current and up to date on rent. They are only texting eviction notice and today they text me saying they have scheduled a showing for tomorrow at 9am , even though we are still paying rent every month and are currently living in the home. The... Read more »
Landlord must send notice to you and provide proof to the court. Text message is not a proper notice under Section 83.56(3), Florida Statutes. You are not required to accommodate the showing because you are legal possessor of the premise.
Im curious if I rent a house with three other people and one of the people invites a person onto the property that isnt wanted on the property by the other tenants am I rightfully allowed to tell said person to vacate the property?
When you rent an apartment or house with others, all of you lease 100% of the premises. Your housemate has every right to invite someone to the property; you have every right to not allow it. Its a housemate issue. Now, if this person causes a problem such that his or her continuing presence is the...Read more »

There was a water leak but the water leak has been fixed so there’s no need for the landlord to tear out the walls inconveniencing my family trying to replace plumbing whit me and my children living here
Landlord has a duty to provide habitable premise and to provide quiet use and enjoyment. Everything they do should be reasonable. If the inconvenience is for one day or two, I do not think you have a claim against that. Or if the inconvenience is minor, you do not have a valid claim neither. You...Read more »
Elevator has been out of order periodically my whole tenancy here, but recently it has been out of order for 90 days maybe more. I have fallen and hurt myself multiple times and almost fall down a flight of stairs everytime I have somewhere to be,
The Landlord has every right to know who is living in the apartments, and has decided that since she lives there, that she needs to be legally responsible, along with you, for the rent. If you elect to not comply, the LL may decide to evict you both; the mere filing of an eviction complaint can...Read more »
Yes, within reason. You don't have to give the LL carte blanche to bring people over anytime, but at the same time you probably cannot refuse every and all requests. Read your lease, there may be some reference to this situation.
Read your lease. Generally, usually, normally, late fees are considered rent and due along with the next rent payment. Let's say your October rent was $500. You paid late and were assessed a $50 late fee. Your November rent due is $550, not $500.
Although I have never seen this egregious over-reach before, I can't say I am surprised to see it happening now; why? Because it is just another prime example of human greed for money dominating everything else in the United States.
As as to whether your landlord or the owner of the...Read more »
My wife and I are elderly, and we live in a mobile home park. We own the home, but the landlord owns the land. We pay monthly rent. When we first moved to our current residence our son lived with us.

Owner has not told me. Looked on clerk of court records. Foreclosure started in sept. I have 4 months left in lease. What are my rights? Do I still pay him rent? Worried about getting my security deposit back as well. There has been no communication with him regarding this.
The only issue is whose name is on the Lease. Generally, landlords want the name of every adult residing in the rented space to be on the lease (meaning that all the adults are equally responsible to the landlord for the full amount of the monthly rent). If you executed a new lease and you are the...Read more »
I payed my rent on the first. The money was taken out of my account and I received a letter saying I didn't pay. I've called them and emailed them and nothing. It's been a week and about 2 days ago I received a reply saying they are looking into it.
Generally speaking, your landlord should not be able to legally evict you for non-payment of rent if you indeed paid rent on time. Maintain your records and contact a local landlord-tenant attorney if the situation escalates.
