What are my rights as a Tenant when I prepaid the Rent for one year and the Landlord won't
make any repairs to the home.
Tampa, FL |
The amount paid to Realtor for one year rent (40,780) Soon after we moved in the problems started we sent the landlord over 100 emails but still no resolution now has placed a 3 day notice on the door.
The landlord-tenant relationship is contractual and governed by statute in Florida. The statute is very complicated and easy for landlords to violate. An attorney can handle your case, and if you win, the landlord may be responsible for your legal fees.
Additionally, landlords must maintain their leaseholds in conditions suitable for human habitation. Failure to do that is a breach of your contract and the landlord's statutory duties to you.
