Customer Question

I have a 2 year rental lease for May 2015 to 2017, my landlord came to collect rent for June and brought another lease which starts July 2016 to June 2017 and at an increase of 100.00 per month. Can she do this and what are my rights as a tenant?

Good morning. I am Loren, a Florida licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Does the current lease contain any provision for early termination?

Are you currently in breach? What has the landlord stated, if anything, will happen if you refuse to sign the new lease?
