Some believe they can withhold rent due to the Landlord not making repairs or failing to remove violations in the property. This is completely untrue. If a Landlord does not receive notice pursuant to 83.56 that they are not in compliance, they can still proceed with removal proceedings. One of the biggest mistakes Tenants make is their failure to give Notice. Not only does it result in an Eviction, it can lead to long term consequences. This includes damage to credit and inability to rent another property.
Lease Term Compliance
It is important to note that Landlords and Tenants have a responsibility to comply with the terms of the lease. While they are afforded rights pursuant to the Lease and Florida Statute, 83.56 must be strictly complied with. Therefore, if you have a Tenant that continues to withhold rent for alleged violations, but has failed to give notice, a Landlord can proceed with Tenant removal.
