    Tips for Renting in Pensacola

    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.
