I am in the process of renting a condo in the state of Florida in which the owner (the person listed on the property appraiser website) is not directly involved. The owner is elderly and in a nursing home. The owner's son claims that he has power of attorney over his mother and has given me a lease agreement in which he listed himself as the landlord. The owner of the property is not mentioned anywhere in the lease. If the son shows me written proof of power of attorney over his mother, will the lease be a legal agreement? Shouldn't the owner be listed as the landlord and the son with power of attorney be listed as her authorized agent? I want to make sure my rights are protected before I enter into an agreement with someone that is not listed on the deed of the property.
