Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
Yes, there is nothing that would prohibit you from remaining in the property if the other person wants to leave as long as you are able to continue to pay the full rent.
If you are under a fixed term written lease, then the landlord couldn't terminate it and ask you to leave before the expiration date as long as the rent was paid and there were no breaches of the lease.
If you are under a month to month tenancy, then either you or the landlord could give a written 15 day notice to terminate the tenancy under FL law.
Ok, then the landlord couldn't terminate it and ask you to leave prior to the expiration date even if the other person moved out as long as you are paying the rent..
Nope, you are good as long as the rent is paid in full... You have full rights to stay there for the full duration of the lease as long as the full rent is paid..
If the other person leaves, that is their choice and you would actually have the right to sue them for half the rent if you had an agreement between the two of you that you would split the rent.
As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
