  1. Those lease provisions are enforceable under Florida law and are very common provisions when renting a single family home.
  2. The landlord is not required to mitigate his damages until an actual breach of the leasehas occurred. Therefore the landlord can wait until August to begin searching for another tenant. The new lease may also have additional penalties for terminating the lease.
  3. So did you have a pet? If so, did you pay the agreed pet charge?
  4. Your landlord is not required to pay for alternate accommodations. Your renters insurance would cover this costs. If you failed to get renters insurance, the costs is on you or the neighbor.
  5. Under Florida law, your daughter owes rent for every day the unit remains empty due to your daughters breach of contract. Having a "pending applicant" does not relieve her of her obligations. She will also owe for any advertising fees, administrative fees, reletting fees and broker fees...if applicatable. She may even owe a termination fee if one is outlined in her lease.
  6. While I sympathize with what your going through, under the law, it is irrelevant. The landlord is not required to support you and you should not blame her for your hardships. Pay rent as agreed or risk getting sued and evicted. Having an eviction on your record will make it nearly impossible to rent elsewhere. Call your local housing authority/social services and see what help you can get as far as housing goes.
  7. She has every right to wait for the court papers. Being so behind on rent will not sit well with the judge and she will lose her case. The landlord is running a business...not a charity. No judge...especially in Florida, is going to force a landlord to support her until her taxes come in. Also, having an eviction on her record will make it nearly impossible to rent elsewhere.
  8. Read your lease carefully. Texas law does allow the landlord to seize personal property under certain circumstances and limitations.
