The landlord's right to show the property depends on the wording of your lease. If you are unsure of the meaning of your lease or your rights and responsibilities as a tenant, you should consult an experienced real estate lawyer in your area.

It doesn't state anything in the lease and he wasn't showing the property he is just showing up and sitting outside either honking or touching the electric which is not in his name he has not tryed to comunicate with me at all! Florida state law states that he has to give atleast 12 hrs notice so doesn't he!?


The landlord's right to show up at any time depends on the terms of the lease but the landlord does not have the right to shut off electric service. Disconnecting electric service may entitle you to the equivalent of three months rent from the landlord. Call a landlord-tenant attorney as soon as possible.
