Landlord/Tenant Disputes

Residential Landlord/Tenant Actions

A residential landlord/tenant action applies to the rental of noncommercial dwelling unit with or without a rental agreement. It involves an action filed by a landlord against a tenant or a tenant against a landlord for common disputes dealing with payment of rent and/or noncompliance or breach of a lease or rental agreement.

Chapter 83, Florida Statutes, provides general information on landlord/tenant actions. Landlord actions typically involve nonpayment of rent and recovering possession of the rental property. Review this section before starting legal action.
