Tenants throughout the state of Florida believe they have the right to withhold rent due to the Landlord not making repairs in the property or that the Landlord has failed to remove violations in the property. This is completely untrue. If a Landlord in the state of Florida does not receive proper notice pursuant to Florida Statute 83.56 that there are violations in the property or that the Landlord is not in compliance with the terms of the lease or Florida Statute, the Landlord has every right to proceed with removal proceedings.
Lease Term Compliance
It is important to note that both Landlords and Tenants have a responsibility to comply with the terms of the lease and Florida Statute. While Landlords and Tenants are afforded certain rights pursuant to the Lease and Florida Statute, the notice requirement pursuant to Florida Statute 83.56 must be strictly complied with. Therefore, if you are a Landlord in the State of Florida and have a Tenant that continues to withhold rent for alleged violations in the property, but has failed to give notice pursuant to Florida Statue 83.56, a Landlord can proceed with Tenant removal.
