Landlord/Tenant & Evictions

Mold and the Landlord/Tenant Relationship in Florida

Florida Mold? If you live in Florida, Mold occurs quite frequently due to the humidity and high rain percentage. Florida Statute 83.56 states that a Tenant must give the Landlord written notice of issues in the unit causing the unit to be uninhabitable. Mold is a serious issue and can affect the health and well-being of those living in the unit. As soon as the Landlord is on notice of the Mold issue, the Landlord has 7 days to fix the issue or begin steps to correct the Mold. The Landlord can hire a Mold remediation company to identify the issue and provide the best court of action to attack the Mold.

Under Florida Statute 83.56, as long as the Landlord is taking steps to correct the Mold issue, the Tenant cannot breach the rental agreement. The Tenant can, however, request that the rent be reduced by an amount in proportion to the loss of rental value.

Mold must be taken seriously and notice is key. Have an issue with Mold in your Florida rental property?  Call the Law Office of Ryan S. Shipp, PLLC @ (561) 699-0399 to discuss your remedies today.  We represent both Landlords and Tenants.
