Florida Residential Lease Agreement
The Florida Residential Lease Agreement conforms to a traditional yearly agreement with incremental monthly payments following the Landlord-Tenant following all State laws (83.49). The landlord is encouraged to ask the applying tenant(s) to fill-out a rental application, which will give the landlord access to the individual’s credit, rental, criminal, and employment history. This is to ensure only the most trustworthy tenants, financially and background, are accepted to live in the property. The landlord may ask that the applying tenants pay for the application without reimbursement, even if the landlord does not accept them into the property after viewing the possible tenant’s credentials.
It is also recommended that the landlord ask the new tenants to pay a security deposit, that may be as much as desired under State laws (83.49).
