DO I NEED A LEASE?
In Florida you are not required to have a written lease in order to rent your property. However, a written lease is always a good idea. If there is no lease between the parties the landlord/tenant relationship will be governed solely by Florida Statutes Chapter 83, Part II. Landlords can’t seek to avoid the obligations placed upon them by Florida Statutes, but written leases can fill in any holes left by the statutes and clarify both the landlord’s and the tenant’s obligations.
WHAT IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW A WRITTEN LEASE CAN DIFFER FROM THE STATUTES?
A perfect example of how a written lease can benefit landlords is in defining a tenant’s obligations. There is nothing in the statutes that govern criminal activity of a tenant. For example if there is no written lease and a tenant commits a crime on the premises the landlord might find it hard to terminate the tenancy. However, a written lease can easily state that a tenant cannot commit a crime on the premises. This not only protects the landlord, it can also protect other tenants and neighbors.
Oral leases automatically renew until either the landlord or tenant give a statutory notice that the lease will not be renewed. A written lease can be for a specific period of time that terminates automatically without any notice. Of course if the landlord and tenant decide to continue the tenancy they can easily enter into a new lease or sign an addendum that extends the term of the original lease.
