Landlords and Tenants are governed by the Florida Statutes and the Florida Residential Landlord Tenant Act. A rental/lease agreement can be either written or oral. Most agreements are written, because an oral agreement can be subject to misunderstanding and are difficult to prove upon a dispute. However, even with a signed rental/lease agreement, the Laws prevail over what the lease states. If you are involved in a dispute, let us help you stay on the correct side of the Laws.
