Does this image look like your once nice Florida Landlord? Is your Landlord or Property Manager not holding-up to their obligations in your Lease Agreement? Are you a Tenant Calling Code Enforcement on your Florida Landlord?

Pursuant to Florida Statute, 83.64, “it is unlawful for a landlord to discriminatorily increase a tenant’s rent or decrease services to a tenant, or to bring or threaten an action for possession or other civil action, primarily because the landlord is retaliating against the tenant.”

Additionally, “a landlord may not retaliate” when a “tenant has complaint to a governmental agency charged with responsibility for enforcement of a building, housing, or health code of a suspected violation applicable to the premises.”

Based on the above-stated Florida Statute, a Florida Landlord cannot threaten a Florida Eviction if a Florida Tenant files a complaint with the Local Code Enforcement agency as long as the complaint has been made in “good faith.”  In this circumstance, good faith means that the Florida Tenant has sufficient evidence and documentation of code enforcement issues.
