Almost three million Florida residences are occupied by renters. With that many rentals, it is logical that Florida has seen its fair share of disputes. At the Law Office of Tristan Wolbers, we have helped both landlords and tenants in a variety of matters and disputes.
Florida Statutes, Section 83, sets forth the specific rights and duties of both landlords and tenants. The Florida legislature has clearly spelled out the guidelines for rental agreements, as well as the procedures to follow in the event that a party breaches an agreement. However, this does not guarantee that people will follow these procedures!
Tenants; if you are not careful, you may be subject to an improper eviction, or lose your security deposit without justification. A landlord may also attempt to hold you responsible for additional damages to the property which you did not cause.
On the other hand, landlords take a big risk when renting out a residence. You may have invested thousands of dollars into a house. You want to make sure that your investment is properly protected from unnecessary risks.
We have helped our clients in many landlord-tenant disputes, from crafting Lease Agreements, to obtaining reimbursement of a security deposit, and pursuing tenants who caused significant damages to a property which was not covered by the deposit.
