What are common issues between landlords and tenants?

Both the act of renting a home and overseeing the rental process can feel like walking on eggshells. Between rent payments, security deposits, and leasing agreements, the whole order requires careful attention to the applicable laws.

Since renting have become such a viable option, leases and contracts have been one of the most disputed issues between landlords and tenants.

Rental agreements should include all of the following:

  • The exact amount of rent
  • When the rent is due
  • Where the rent is due
  • Any late charges
  • Utility specifics
  • Tenant responsibilities
  • Eviction information

It is these very topics that can lead to conflicts and, if necessary, legal intervention. If a tenant neglects to pay their rent, a landlord must give at least three days' notice to the tenant before they can be evicted. A tenant who repeatedly causes purposeful destruction to the property may also be evicted with proper notice.

Various cities and counties within Florida have their own laws which citizens are expected to abide by, such as quiet hours and garbage pickup. Landlords and tenants are expected to abide by these rules and action may be taken if there is a failure to do so.
