Yes. If you are under lease and your lease will expire within 30 days, the landlord can show the property to secure another tenant. As a tenant, you must receive reasonable notice from your landlord. If the language is not contained in your lease, landlord/tenant issues should be covered under your state statutes, or city, county regulations. ... more

I believe if you have received mail at this address, this makes you a resident of the home. If you have mail with your name on i, this is proof. They must then get an eviction (which will cost them money) to get you out. Keep in mind your time staying there would probably be miserable......I would just leave and be at peace. ... more

First you should know your rights as a tenant. Google Florida Tenant landlord Act
Second make sure that you can actually afford the rent comfortably. poor payment history can follow you, even if you are not evicted.
Third, engage everything that runs on power, or has water flowing through it.
When in doubt, pay to have it inspected.
Finally, understand your lease BEFORE you sign it! Most ppl disregard this, and it can come back to haunt you.
A tenant and landlord both living up to their responsibilities makes everything.

Best of luck to you, and email me if you have further questions

There are property managers that do not do credits checks; however, as a property manager myself, if I have a prospective renter that is honest and upfront with me, their credit does not count against them in a case such as yours. Feel free to call me and we can discuss your options. If you are interested in purchasing, we work with mortgage brokers that do credit repair and purchase planning. Thank you
