When a tenant signs a lease, they automatically gain rights to certain things. And, among these things is the right to live in privacy. Under the implied covenant of quiet enjoyment, you have a responsibility to maintain a tranquil environment that your tenant can reasonably use and enjoy.
The implied covenant of quiet enjoyment is a foundational concept built into every tenancy agreement. It exists whether or not it’s stated on the lease or rental agreement.
As a landlord, understanding what this law entails is key to running a successful rental investment. Why? Because, if you fail to observe it, you risk several potential ramifications.
For one, your tenant may be able to sue for money damages amounting to a partial or full refund of rent during the entire time the violation has been there. And two, your tenant could also have the legal justification to move out without further obligations to the lease.
While landlords have a right to enter rented premises, they must strictly adhere to the landlord-tenant law. In Florida, landlords must provide their tenants with a notice of at least 12 hours prior to entering the rental property. It also goes without saying that the reason and timing of entry must be practical, as well.
