Landlords can now impose early termination fees on residential leases, charging tenants who vacate properties early up to two months worth of rent. Tenants must examine their lease agreements carefully; there is an option to accept or reject that clause, but it may not be obvious to people renewing leases. Until this summer’s change to state law, breaking a lease was a bit of a gamble for many of Florida’s 4.5 million renters. Landlords, by law, could continue collecting rent until they found a new tenant, regardless of whether it took a few weeks or six months. Anyone who rejects the early termination clause will still be bound by the old system.
