Today, Brandon is home to more than 2,500 businesses. It occupies a land mass equal to 23.69 square miles.

    Tips for renting in Brandon, FL

    Landlord – Tenant rights and duties are governed by Chapter 83, Part II of the Florida Statutes that outline procedures when landlords and tenants engage in civil actions. To avoid these actions, tenants are advised to follow certain steps before they agree to rent. Remember that in Florida, oral and written rental agreements are binding.

    By recognizing that Florida regards tenants as equal parties in rental situations, the tenant is always advised to perform a thorough inspection and walk through of the property prior to agreeing to rent. If there are repairs needed to make the rental unit safe and habitable, make sure they are performed prior to occupancy and relinquishing any funds.

    Tenants should feel free to use technology to support their pre-rental evaluations and request for repairs. Videos, written notes, and written agreements to perform repairs can settle many issues before they become formal disagreements. Tenants should make sure complaints are repaired or clauses requiring the repairs to be performed are included in the rental agreement prior to signing.
