Florida Statutes provide the landlord with the right to inspect the property for any emergency reason whether its a leak, a fire, or anything that could place the property or the tenant in peril. Many residential and commercial leases to rent include language that sets out how and why the Landlord can enter the property, for either (i) inspection (ii) repairs (iii) emergency and if they feel you have abandoned the property, to protect their property from harm. If the Lease is silent, then Florida Statutes steps in and provides the protection for the Landlord.

Many tenants, however, do not want the landlord coming into their property to inspect or repair, and prohibit the Landlord from entering or accessing the property. This is strictly prohibited and could place the tenant in breach of contract.

The landlord must provide notice if coming to inspect. Typically it is 24 hours notice. However, the lease may provide for a different time frame. The landlord can also go in with their agents or workers in order to access the property for repairs or maintenance.

However, they dont have the right to harrass you or go in repeatedly just to annoy the tenant. There must be a valid reason.

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.
