Good morning,

Under Florida law, a landlord who wishes to enter a rental unit must give the tenant at least 12 hours’ notice that he or she intends to access the unit.

If the tenant receives the notice and agrees to an earlier timeframe, it’s okay for the landlord to enter at this time. Otherwise, the landlord can only enter at a “reasonable time,” which Florida law defines in the statute as between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

So, while they don't have to give you 24 hours notice, 1/2 notice is not sufficient, unless you otherwise agree to it.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
