In both commercial and residential leaseholds, the relationship between a landlord and the tenant is governed by both terms of the lease agreement and statutory rules and regulations. Florida, like most states, has a body of statutes and case law dealing exclusively with the landlord-tenant relationship. Chapter 83 of Florida Statutes provides the legal regulations and requirements. The guidelines and available rights and remedies vary drastically depending on whether the demised property is residential or commercial. Oftentimes, Florida laws impose stricter requirements on a residential landlord.
