Florida Standard Residential Lease Agreement

Updated March 04, 2021

A Florida standard residential lease agreement is a common template used between landlords and tenants for the renting of property in exchange for rent. Before signing an agreement, the landlord will commonly verify the tenant’s employment and personal information through a rental application. The landlord may charge a fee for conducting this verification (no maximum) and, upon approval, a lease should be negotiated and signed.
