Always Remember There is Never a Fee For the Renter to Use a Realtor, The Landlords are Responsible for paying the Agents Commission. Most people think they are going to save money by not using a Realtor, That is true Sometimes, The only way you are going to save money By not using a Realtor is if you find a Private landlord that does not have the Property Listed on the MLS Service. Trust me on this Remark, If they are not willing to list there home with a Realtor something tells me you wouldn’t want to live there anyway.
Most Landlords are overall nice people and never bother the Tenants and then there are those that are in your business every day and night which there is no need for that. When Interviewing with a potential landlord you should always make sure there are some ground rules in place on what and what is not allowed for the Landlord to do while you are living in the property.
As a Landlord they are allowed to check in on the property with notice, This does not apply to calling you when they are standing at the front door telling you they would like to come in, this is not what you would really call advanced notice. These are some of the things that must be in writing when signing a lease for a Home, condo or town home.

More Information For Florida Tenants & Renters
Once you find a place where you want to live, you will be required to fill out a rental application. In most cases, you will be charged an application fee to cover the cost of running credit checks, verifying rental histories, etc. This fee is non-refundable.
You may also be asked to pay an application deposit. This deposit is applied toward your security deposit if your application is approved. If it is not, the deposit is refundable in most cases. However, depending on the application you fill out, the deposit may not be refunded if you are accepted but decide not to move in, you fail to tell the truth on your application, or for certain other reasons. Avoiding problems.
Most disagreements between residents and rental housing owners or managers occur because of misunderstandings about the obligations taken on by each party when an apartment or other rental housing is leased. The best ways to avoid problems are to:
- Read The lease Agreement carefully before signing.
- Ask questions about anything that is not clear to you.
Put everything in writing, including agreements, notices and requests. After you sign the lease Keep a copy signed by you and the owner or manager. The lease is the most important set of rules to follow if you have a disagreement. Also keep a copy of the apartment or rental housing rules (sometimes called “community policies”).
Make a Checklist of conditions of the property and furniture when you move in. (Some properties use an inventory and condition form). Sign it, have the manager sign it and keep a dated copy. This will be your best defense in any dispute over deductions for repairs when you move out. Keep your rent payment current as required by your lease. You should not withhold rent, since that could make you subject to eviction and liable for paying the remaining rent.
