The Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners passed a new ordinance, effective March 25, 2022, that requires landlords to give residential tenants at least 60 days’ written notice when:
- Increasing rent by more than 5%
- Terminating a month-to-month residential rental agreement (tenants also have to give 60 days’ notice here)
It is important to remember that the ordinance addresses TWO SEPARATE ISSUES: rent increases and termination of month-to-month tenancies. Fair notification for rental increases appears to apply to all tenancies, whether or not there is a written lease. The termination of month-to-month tenancies does not affect the termination of written lease agreements.
