Due to the high volume of international and domestic travelers and a large student population, Orlando is one of the biggest markets nationwide for rental housing. The City Beautiful also experiences a high demand for commercial properties. The legal requirements faced by landlords can be complex and challenging to understand. And, while owning and leasing property can be lucrative, tenants routinely violate lease provisions, including requirements regarding the timely payment of rent. If a tenant neglects to pay rent, a landlord must give at least three days’ notice to the tenant before the tenant can be evicted. A problem tenant who repeatedly causes intentional purposeful destruction to your property may also be evicted with proper notice.
Because tenants have certain rights, landlords seeking to evict tenants must comply with statutory or lease deadlines and procedures. Central Florida landlords can turn to J&J Legal, whose attorneys understand state and local regulations and can help ensure you decrease your liability and protect your rights.
