[ARCHIVED] Change in Landlord / Tenant Laws

City Seal

The City of Key West wants to inform tenants and landlords that a new bill signed into law in Tallahassee overrides a tenant-protection ordinance passed by the City Commission in August of 2022.

House Bill 1417 supersedes any local government regulation of landlord-tenant relationships.

In August, the City Commission passed an amendment to Section 18-710 of the City's Code of Ordinances that would require landlords to provide sixty days' notice before ending a month-to-month rental agreement or increasing rent by more than 5 percent.

However, the new state law reduces the notice period to between 15 to 30 days.

The commission gave staff direction to start the process of rescinding the moot ordinance.  The state law goes into effect on July 1, 2023.
