Prohibited Provisions Florida Residential Lease

In Florida, the written residential lease is the most important document a Landlord or a Tenant can have. The residential lease dictates the duties and responsibilities of the Landlord as well as the Tenant. If any portion of the residential lease is not adhered to, an action for eviction may commence.

In some situations, the Landlord will deviate from the Florida Bar-approved or Florida realtor-approved residential lease and will create their own lease. It is important for tenants to review each clause of the lease and some leases can appear to be one-sided.

Pursuant to Florida Statute 83.47, a Landlord cannot have the following provisions in the lease: (a) any provision that waives or precludes the rights, remedies or requirements set forth in Chapter 83 of the Florida Statutes; (b) any provision that limits or precludes any liability of the Landlord to the Tenant or of the Tenant to the Landlord, arising under law; or (c) if such a provision exists and either the Landlord or Tenant suffers actual damages as a result, the aggrieved party may recover those damages.

It is extremely important to understand your rights and duties under the residential lease. If you are unclear of what your rights and responsibilities are, make it known to the other party to ensure clarification. The Attorneys at The Law Office of Ryan S. Shipp, PLLC our proficient in drafting and tailoring your Florida Residential Lease or your Florida Commercial Lease to your specific needs.

Speeding Ticket Palm Beach County FL

Thousands of speeding tickets are issued in Florida every year.  Most people pay the fine and and put the matter behind them.  However, in certain cases there may be valid reasons for contesting a speeding ticket.  If you received a speeding ticket and your excessive speed was validly related to an emergency, or you were exceeding the speed limit to avoid emergency vehicles rapidly changing lanes, you may have grounds for having the ticket dismissed.  Other grounds for dismissal include inaccurate radar evidence or law enforcement’s lack of jurisdiction to enforce speeding laws in a given area.  If you decide to contest your ticket in Palm Beach County, Florida, you must submit your request online, in writing, or in person within thirty (30) days of receiving the ticket.

Overly cautious drivers should also be aware that it is possible to receive a ticket for driving too slow in a manner that blocks traffic.  In Florida, the minimum speed limit on interstate highways is fifty (50) miles per hour.  Should you have any questions regarding any traffic related offenses, including red light tickets and speeding fines, the ticket lawyers at The Law Office of Ryan S.
