Landlord and Tenant Act Goes into Effect in Florida
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Perhaps one of the biggest changes to the law grants landlords the right to collect partial rent without waiving their right to evict.
Renters are concerned with this new ability or landlords to evict them, and property managers say that personal situations will be taken into account.
With the new changes renters can actually expect landlords to be more willing to accept partial rent payments.
UF Student, Mark Morrison, “If I’m agreeing that oh like we’re going to have some system, like an agreement where we have some system and I’m unable to do it, I would kinda want a little leeway, iift was possible because obviously I’m in dire straits.”
Other changes allow law enforcement to serve eviction notices through weekends and holidays.
There are also some changes that benefit the renter, with the law going into effect... tenants that pay landlords association fees and make fair complaints are protected from landlord retaliation.
One more important addition to the law is now both landlords and renters are required to give notice of their intent to not renew a lease.
