The house we are renting does not have any screens nor blinds on any of the windows nor glass sliding doors. I have mentioned to them on several occasions about the screens and the responses I have gotten is I will get back to you. I would love to open up windows as the temps begin to drop. But without screens that isn't possible due to bugs coming in. Any help you can give me I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
The obligations of your landlord to maintain the premises can be found in Florida Statute 83.51, which can include maintaining the window screens. This obligation can be modified if you are renting a single family home or duplex. If you are in a single family home, then the specific terms of your lease will control. I suggest you review your lease agreement to determine who is responsible for the screens. If you are not sure, I recommend you consult with a local attorney who practices in landlord/tenant law to review the lease.
