Is There Rent Control in Florida?

There are no laws in Florida that regulate rent increases, so you won't be able to find rent-controlled housing anywhere in the state.

Florida has no statewide rent regulation statutes, also known as "rent control." That said, cities such as Miami or Tampa could have laws that control rent if they wanted—unlike some states, where rent control is fully banned, localities in Florida are free to pass their own rent control laws. None have.

That means there's no limit to how much your landlord can raise the rent at the end of each lease term. But you should still understand the laws around rent increases, including how much notice a landlord has to give you before a rent hike.
