Under landlord-tenant laws in Florida, a person is a tenant when they pay rent to live in any dwelling. Even if there is no formal, written agreement in place, they are a tenant and have tenant protection in Florida.
The landlord's responsibilities under Florida law include:
Allow tenants the private, peaceful possession of the property
Ensuring the dwelling is in good, habitable condition
Ensure the building meets local health, building, and safety codes
Install working smoke detectors
Florida landlord-tenant laws require that tenants:
Keep the dwelling clean
Not damage the property
Ensure they and their guests do not disturb the peace locally
Use all services provided in a reasonable manner
States laws differ on deposits and legal proceedings when things go wrong. It's important to follow the rules to a tee to ensure any legal proceedings go smoothly.
