Landlord / Tenant Law

Residential and Commercial Leases and Disputes in Florida

Tenant rights and landlord disputes are typically governed by state property and contracts law. A lease or a rental agreement defines the length of the rental term, the rental amount, penalties for late payments, and the amount of notice required for lease termination of eviction. The landlord law invokes the duty to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition in view of all the circumstances. Additionally, state or local landlord tenant law sets the requirements for evicting a tenant, which may occur for only a limited number of reasons before the tenancy expires.

Both property owners and their tenants maintain certain rights under Florida law and terms of the lease agreement. We are prepared to take aggressive legal action to protect the interests of our clients.
