A Florida residential lease agreement binds a landlord and tenant to rent a property on a fixed term, usually for a one (1) year period. Before writing an agreement, the landlord will usually run the tenant’s credit through a rental application and, if approved, begin the process. At the time of lease signing, the tenant is obligated to pay a security deposit, 1st month’s rent, and any additional fees attributed to the property (e.g. parking fee, pet fee, etc.).
