Owning property in Broward and Miami-Dade County can be a good source of passive income as long as you have reliable tenants. Statistically, if you enter into enough rental agreements, you will eventually come across a tenant who is unwilling or unable to pay his rent. If you cannot come to an agreement with your tenant, you will have to petition the court for an eviction. The Hershey Law Firm PA is well versed in Florida landlord-tenant laws. The firm represents real estate owners in their disputes with tenants who have violated the terms of their lease agreement.
LANDLORD AND TENANT RIGHTS
Florida law affords certain rights to tenants. For example, you must respect privacy of tenants, make visits for emergency repairs, and give ample notice before inspections. Also, the state will not allow you to remove a delinquent tenant without due process. There are many reasons why it is so important to prescreen your prospective tenants before entering into a lease agreement and moving into the property. At The Hershey Law Firm, PA, we advise clients on how to establish procedures and policies that will protect them against interruptions in their rental revenues.
