Legal Update: New Law Requiring 60-day Notification Periods for Rent Increases & Termination of Monthly and Quarterly Rentals in Broward County

The Broward County Board of County Commissioners passed a new ordinance, effective May 1, 2022, that requires landlords to give residential tenants at least 60 days’ written notice when:

  1. Increasing rent by more than 5%
  2. Terminating a monthly or quarterly residential rental agreement

RENT INCREASES MORE THAN 5%

  • If landlord will raise the rent by more than 5%, the landlord must give the tenant 60 days’ notice before the end of the lease, or at any time during a monthly or quarterly tenancy
  • This ordinance does NOT APPLY if the landlord expressly provided for rent increases in a written lease
  • Tenant then must accept the rent increase, reach a different agreement with the landlord, or reject the rent increase
  • If the tenant rejects the rent increase, the landlord may increase the rent or require the tenant to vacate

TERMINATION OF MONTHLY OR QUARTERLY TENANCIES

  • This does NOT APPLY to or change the terms of any residential tenancies or renewals that existed before May 1, 2022
  • For month-to-month tenants, or tenants who pay rent on a quarterly basis, either the landlord or the tenant must give 60 days’ written notice to terminate the tenancy
