Florida Habitability Laws clearly delineate the responsibilities of landlords to provide safe, habitable living environments. The laws list what landlords are responsible for maintaining and repairing in their rental property. The laws also provide for tenant options when the landlord does not make repairs in a timely manner.
The types of housing that are covered by the habitability laws are single-family and multi-family homes, as well as mobile home parks and condos (if a renter is occupying the unit). The habitability laws do not specifically address RV parks. Hotels/motels and fraternities/sororities/clubs are not included under the habitability laws.
