    Regarding landlord/tenant laws in Florida, would you consider them more landlord friendly, or tenant friendly?

    From what I can tell, landlord/tenant laws in Florida are pretty neutral. Is there a specific area you are concerned about?

    Having dealt with rental property in both Ohio and Florida, I would tend to agree with Chadster. One main difference I’ve noticed is in regards to a tenant breaking a lease. In Ohio, other than any property damages, it’s hard to collect much more than that. However in Florida, you can collect rent while you try to find a new tenant, similar to the commercial world. There are other minor differences, so I’d say Florida is only slightly more landlord friendly.
