SOUTH FLORIDA REAL ESTATE LAWYERS
LANDLORD TENANT LAW
Whether you are a tenant in South Florida housing that is experiencing mold, or a landlord in South Florida being told by your tenant that the property has mold, the solution is not always easy. Living in such close proximity to the water, it is almost impossible to not find a property in South Florida that does not have the presence of mold. And not all mold is dangerous, life threatening or hazardous. However, some mold is and that is where things can get very scary.
Florida landlord tenant law is governed by Florida Statutes Chapter 83. Chapter 83 makes the landlord responsible for providing habitable conditions in a property rented. This means air, water and conditions that do not cause health concerns. However, many residential leases contain clauses that opt out of Florida landlord tenant law Chapter 83, and the tenant signs that he accepts the property as is and that at the time of signing there is no mold.
Many residential landlord tenant leases also require notice to the landlord and opportunity to correct the issue, which could mean calling a mold remediation company to assess the existence of mold, type of mold and remove it. Mold also causes severe property damages when spores attach to sofas, and clothing, aggravating the situation and out of pocket damages even more.
If you suspect you have mold in your real estate property, call an attorney right away. Often if handled from the beginning, there are no delays and the issue can be resolved immediately. We can review your lease at no cost to you and advise what is the best course of action.
