Uses Lease Builder
The State of Florida enforces rigorous Landlord-Tenant regulations on those leasing real estate. For instance, Florida requires that all Leases over one year in length (by even one day) must be witnessed. Further, this requirement declares that a Landlord shall have two witnesses for each signature on the Lease agreement, including both the Landlord and the Tenant signatures.
To ensure that your Lease agreement remains compliant with Florida statutes, our exclusive Lease Builder automatically attaches state-required addenda and disclosures as you fill in the Lease. This document also meets Lease requirements for the city of Jacksonville and Tampa.
Our Florida Assist text boxes explain how to apply state requirements. Intuitive steps and auto-filled sections minimize labor as you create a comprehensive lease package. Also, the Lease Builder allows you to save changes, sign out of your account, and return later to complete the document.
