Are you a Florida Tenant that is having problems with your Florida Property and you are thinking about withholding rent? 954 Eviction Attorneys recommends the following: Do Not Withhold Rent Without Giving Proper Florida 7 Day Notice. Many Florida Tenants believe that they can withhold rent from their Broward Landlord even if they receive a Florida 3 Day Notice or if they were served with a Florida Eviction Complaint. Do not make this mistake! If you are going to withhold rent from your Broward Landlord because they are not responding to your requests to fix your apartment or home, you must give them a proper Florida 7 (seven) Day Notice in accordance with Florida Statutes Chapter 83, Sections 83.51 and 83.56. Please remember, Do Not Withhold Rent Without Giving Proper Florida 7 Day Notice.
If the proper Florida 7 (seven) Day notice is not given seven (7) days prior to the next rental payment period, you will not be able to withhold rent from your Broward Landlord. While a Judge may understand that your Broward Landlord is not maintaining your apartment or home, you must follow the correct procedures before withholding rent. Failure to do so could potentially result in an Eviction against you. Once a Florida 7 (seven) day notice is given to your Broward Landlord, they have 7 (seven) days to make all the necessary repairs or cure any material violations of the Lease that they are required to make. If the repairs are not completed within 7 (seven) days, you can begin to withhold rent until all the repairs are completed.
