There are a number of federal, state, and local laws that impact your rental property and your role as a landlord. You can expect your property manager to be educated on Florida statutes and up to date on all the legal changes that are incorporated each year. Your property manager will understand fair housing laws, habitability requirements, and security deposit protocols.
