Florida Landlord Prohibited Lease Provisions

The Florida Statutes Title VI Chapter 83 Part II Section 83.47 restricts a landlord from using the following types of provisions in a residential lease agreement:

Prohibited Provisions in Rental Agreements

(1) A provision in a rental agreement is void and unenforceable to the extent that it:

(a) Purports to waive or preclude the rights, remedies, or requirements set forth in this part.
(b) Purports to limit or preclude any liability of the landlord to the tenant or of the tenant to the landlord, arising under law.

(2) If such a void and unenforceable provision is included in a rental agreement entered into, extended, or renewed after the effective date of this part and either party suffers actual damages as a result of the inclusion, the aggrieved party may recover those damages sustained after the effective date of this part.
