Landlord Responsibilities Florida

Legal Responsibilities of Florida Landlords

In exchange for financial savings, some homeowners would choose to run their rental home without the help of a capable Property Manager. However, running a long-term rental property in the state of Florida comes with multiple responsibilities for Landlords. Let’s outline some of the most important. While considering these responsibilities, think about why you need the help of a capable and experienced property manager as opposed to being the landlord and the property manager:

1.- Landlords cannot discriminate. There are anti-discrimination laws that landlords require to comply. Lack of attention to these lead to costly legal suits. You are not free to discriminate against prospective tenants based on their race, religion, national origin, sex, familial status (such as having children under age 18) or physical or mental disability. These are “protected categories” under the federal Fair Housing Act.

2.- Provide Habitable Housing. You are legally required to keep rental premises livable in Florida, under a legal doctrine called the “implied warranty of habitability.” If you don’t take care of necessary repairs, such as a broken heater, tenants in Florida may have several options, including the right to withhold rent.

3.- Use a legal written agreement. Without one, you may end with big headaches such as having tenants-at-will and create a situation hard to manage. The rental agreement or lease that you and your tenant sign set out the contractual basis of your relationship with the tenant, and it establishes basic guidelines, such as how long the tenant can occupy the rental and the amount of the rent. Taken together with federal, state, and local landlord-tenant laws, your lease or rental agreement sets out all the legal rules you and your tenant need to meet.

4.- Manage Security Deposits. What if your tenants cause damages to the house? One way to cope with this possibility is to hold a security deposit. When the tenant leaves at the end of the agreement, it will be crucial to manage this deposit in line with the law. If not, a dispute may be filed by either party.

5.- Follow the Landlord-Tenant act. This document is the law that rules the rental activity in the state of Florida. You need to make sure that the written agreement harmonizes with this legal code. This is because the act regulates several situations between landlords and tenants, such as the number of days the tenant has to pay after the contract’s due date.

6.- Don’t forget the legal disclosures. Under Florida law, landlords must make certain disclosures to tenants. Some deal with the security deposit,  whether or not it will be held in an interest-bearing account. Landlords must also comply with required federal disclosures or face high penalties.

7.- Privacy of the tenants. Landlords can’t access their properties at will. Tenants have rights. For example, Florida landlords need to provide 12 hours’ notice before entering the rental property, to make repairs or show the property to prospective tenants. It is highly recommended to keep records every time a landlord comes to their property.

8.- Avoid retaliation against your tenant. Do not fall into the trap or increasing the rent or reduce provided services when a tenant makes a claim that is of a legal nature. It is a good practice to keep a paper trail of how you handle repairs.

You may be wondering about the complications of handling rental properties by yourself. Navigating the rental maze is a risky and challenging business.

Lawn Care, a Memorandum to CRI Tenants

Beautiful lawns, tenant responsibility
Beatiful Lawns Equal Beautiful Houses

Lawn Care, a Memorandum to Our Tenants

Reminder from Mike Levine, Broker and Owner of Certified Real Estate Investments to tenants

Dear Tenant,

Lawn maintenance is the most difficult component of the landlord/tenant relationship to manage. Lawn management requires a direct effort that includes watering, mowing, edging, fertilization and pest control. Lawns are expensive. The management team here at Certified Real Estate Investments, Inc. sees expenses ranging from a low of $200 or $300 up to $3,000 or $4,000 when lawns require partial or total replacement.

No one wants to pay to replace a lawn. Landlords don’t want to pay for it. Tenants don’t want to pay for it. The only way to avoid the expense of lawn replacement is to regularly take care of the lawn. While water is expensive, lawn replacement is more expensive.

Please water your lawn. Please test your irrigation system and make sure that all of the irrigation heads are operational. Please pay attention to the condition of your lawn. When you notice the health of your lawn deteriorating, contact us. We want to assist you with lawn maintenance.

Lawn care companies do not effectively ensure the health of their customers’ lawns. Certified Real Estate Investments, Inc. has several properties serviced by lawn care companies. The management team at Certified Real Estate Investments, Inc. has come to the conclusion that the best way to support the health of the lawns under management is for the tenant, the occupant at the property, to apply weed and feed materials to the lawns.

The home improvement stores are helpful in educating consumers about the products necessary to optimize the health and wellness of lawns. The owner of your home and the management team at Certified Real Estate Investments, Inc. would greatly appreciate it if you would apply the appropriate weed and feed products, according to the specific grass variety that you have at your home, to the lawn. Your property manager is happy to assist you with the planning associated with product selection and best practices.

Homes require maintenance. Tenants who rent single-family homes, instead of renting an apartment, townhouse or condominium, must accept the responsibility of caring for their homes, within the parameters of the lease agreement.

Certified Real Estate Investments, Inc. always wants to refund one hundred percent of all tenants’ security deposits. Managing the lawn and landscaping is a giant step towards delivering the property to the owner at the time of move out. Please contact the Certified Real Estate Investments, Inc. management team when you want a preliminary walk-through of your home. The management team always wants to do everything possible to match landlord and tenant expectations.

Thank you for reading this memorandum. Certified Real Estate Investments, Inc. appreciates your business. The team at CRI specializes in housing alternatives. Please contact CRI when you are considering relocation. The CRI team is at your service.

Best Regards,
Mike Levine

Rent Houses Near Disney

Rent Houses Near Disney

Rent Houses Near Disney for long-term occupancy while avoiding mistakes can be achieved. Neighborhoods near Disney comprise a fantastic area to call home. Long-term renting is an essential decision in Central Florida and everywhere. How to ensure you will choose the right property for you and your family?

Certified Real Estate Investments, your long-term rental company based in Clermont, Florida knows. With years of experience renting houses in the area of Four Corners in Florida, we have learned from mistakes made by past tenants. You can learn from them too!

Rent houses near Disney while avoiding mistakes. To achieve this goal, please read some valuable tips to keep in mind as you hunt for a rental home:

  • PAY ATTENTION TO SCHOOL ZONES: This is especially true if you have kids going to school. Find out what school belongs to the zone the rental property is. Find school ratings on the Internet and visit the school personally. Once satisfied, move ahead.
  • CONSIDER THE NEIGHBORHOOD: You want to make your life easy and add to the quality of your life. To accomplish that, services such as shopping, dining, and entertainment matter. The latter is easy in the area Certified Real Estate Investments serve. Disney parks, Universal Studios, Sea World and others are within a reasonable driving time.
  • APARTMENTS VERSUS SINGLE FAMILY HOMES: Nice pool homes easily entice some renters. Then they regret the inconveniences of having one. Pool maintenance, water bills, electric bills and other expenses associated with running a pool at home as well as a higher rental rate increase the family budget.  Also, single-family dwellings require exterior maintenance: lawn, pest control, and irrigation. You need to add these costs to the rental value. Some people prefer renting townhomes or apartments where these services have a lesser impact on the rent and exterior maintenance do not fall on the tenant. Ask yourself which one is for you before starting your search.
  • THE HOME SIZE YOU WILL NEED: Many tenants forget that higher square footage means more money every month. Do you need all the extra space? Is an office a need? Do not forget your electric bills and the need to clean and maintain a larger house. Carefully determine the reasonable size you need. Your budget may like it.
  • NO PETS PLEASE: This phrase is ubiquitous in advertisements for rental properties. It is understandable that property owners dislike the idea of having pets in their houses. Some tenants strive to find a home that will accept their loving pets. Make sure there is a pet addendum included in your lease. If the rental market is tight, finding a home can be a nightmare if you own a pet. Should you buy one or wait?
  • ADEQUATE PARKING: Be careful with this feature. In the Disney area, almost every subdivision has a homeowner association. Bylaws prohibit overnight parking on the streets. They also forbid commercial parking vehicles. Some renters find this out after moving to the rental property. Beware and investigate in advance.
  • CONSIDER THE WALK SCORE: Walk Score measures the walkability of any address using a patented system. For each address, walk score analyzes hundreds of walking routes to nearby amenities. So what is the walk score of the rental home? Is everyone a driver at your house? If not, find out rentals that are adequate for all members of your household. Near Disney, driving is a must.
  • WHAT ELSE? Well, there are many other things to consider. We at Certified Real Estate Investments recommend walking the home with considerable attention to details. Pay attention to the aesthetics. Is a property with carpet flooring for you? Are there decors you cannot stand? Can you compromise what comes with the home?
