Florida Tenant Right to Have Waterbed

The Florida Statutes Title VI Chapter 83 Part II Section 83.535 allows for a tenant to have a waterbed in a residential rental property under the following conditions:

Flotation Bedding System Restrictions

No landlord may prohibit a tenant from using a flotation bedding system in a dwelling unit, provided the flotation bedding system does not violate applicable building codes. The tenant shall be required to carry in the tenant’s name flotation insurance as is standard in the industry in an amount deemed reasonable to protect the tenant and owner against personal injury and property damage to the dwelling units. In any case, the policy shall carry a loss payable clause to the owner of the building.
