Obligations and Rights of Landlords and Tenants

We are able to provide litigation services when it is necessary, but can also work with both sides when a solution can be made together. Through the state laws, both landlords and tenants have certain rights that are protected, as well as obligations that are stated. A tenant’s rights are covered in the Florida Statutes at chapter 83 part 2. They include the right to peaceful possession of the property, to have a sound structure that is fit to live in, to move out when a lease is up and more. Some of their obligations include paying rent on time, following the building codes and keeping the property undamaged.

A landlord has the right to gain rent in exchange for providing the property and to have the property undamaged by a tenant. Some of their responsibilities include allowing the renter to stay in the property without interference and to give notice if an inspection is planned. There are numerous rights and duties present under the law and when a violation occurs, legal action may be needed. Some of the areas that we are able to assist in include the following:

  • Tenants that have not paid rent
  • Evictions
  • Triple net leases where the tenant is not maintaining the property
  • Disputes over a lease agreement
  • Property that is not structurally sound
  • Security deposit disputes
  • Drafting and reviewing notices of termination
  • Countersuits
