    Pensacola, FL in the news

    Renter's guide to Pensacola, FL

    If you enjoy the beach and being near the water, you’ll love calling Pensacola, Florida your home. With over 50 miles of coastline, a vibrant downtown scene, and warm weather year-round, the city provides a perfect blend of sub-tropical life, culture, and diversity.

    The city's a little over 40 square-miles, which is four times smaller than nearby Mobile, AL. Pensacola is about 48 miles from Destin, 450 miles from Orlando, and 675 miles from Miami. While other parts of Florida may seem rather far away, Pensacola is located on the western end of the Florida panhandle, just a few miles east of Alabama.

    TripAdvisor's 2015 Traveler’s Choice Award listed Pensacola Beach as one of the top 5 beaches in the United States. Then there's the Gulf Islands National Seashore, which USA Today listed as the best beach in the state.

    But Pensacola isn't just beaches. The American Planning Association listed Palofox Street, in downtown Pensacola, as one of the top 10 Great Streets in America.

    The city's weather can get awfully hot and steamy in the summertime, with high humidity and temperatures highs in the low 90s. Winters are short and mild, with lows in the mid 40s. Pensacola receives around 65 inches of rainfall annually.

    Tips for renting in Pensacola, FL

    Pensacola – with its beautiful foliage and crisp green-blue bays and gulf – is practically paradise. But before you pack your bags, let’s take a moment to look at some of the rental laws.

    Your landlord has the right to raise the rent as much as they'd like once your lease comes to an end. Neither Pensacola nor the rest of Florida have rent control laws.

    If your unit is in need of repair, your landlord has 20 days to handle it. If they don't, you can withhold rent until the repairs are made. As soon as its taken care of though, you'll go back to paying your rent as normal – including the amount you withheld.

    There can be certain exceptions for both tenants and landlords in the rental agreement, so make sure to read the whole thing before you sign.
