Understanding Port St. Lucie Leases
Trusted Real Estate Attorneys – Call Us Today at (888) 899-8161
When signing a lease in the state of Florida, you will want to make sure you understand all of the terms detailed in the agreement. Residential leases may be for a periodic tenancy, which is for a specified period of time with no definite termination date, such as a month-to-month or year-to-year lease. Periodic tenancy leases are automatically renewed from period to period. Leases can also be for a tenancy for years, which does specify a termination date for the lease. Tenancies for yearly leases are not automatically renewed and require a written change to the lease to alter the terms.
There are certain laws in Port St. Lucie that detail when and how a lease may be terminated. If your landlord has failed to uphold his or her part of the lease agreement, you may have grounds for legal termination based on non-compliance. For example, landlords sometimes fail to make timely repairs; if, after sufficient notice has been given, the repairs have still not been made, the tenant may have legal right to terminate the lease. Because real estate law can be confusing to wade through, it is helpful to have an experienced Port St. Lucie real estate lawyer on your team to help with your case. A knowledgeable attorney can assess your situation and represent your interests in any litigation related to the lease.
When you hire our firm, you can be confident that we will:
- Tenaciously represent you from beginning to end
- Fight for your rights to terminate a lease if the landlord failed to adhere to the terms
- Protect your rights against any false accusations from the landlord
- Document all agreements from the initial lease to prove you were in the right in terminating the lease
- Work to prove that the landlord failed to comply with their requirements listed in the lease
