Florida Law requires the following radon gas disclosure to be made prior to, or at the time of, entering into a rental agreement:
RADON GAS: Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that, when it has accumulated in a building in sufficient quantities, may present health risks to persons who are exposed to it over time. Levels of radon that exceed federal and state guidelines have been found in buildings in Florida. Additional information regarding radon and radon testing may be obtained from your county health department.
This disclosure is specific to the State of Florida. Accordingly, unless the Landlord is using a rental agreement drafted to comply with Florida law, most likely that document does not contain the required disclosure. Too often, I come across Landlords that download leases for free off of the Internet. One of the problems with this is that these Landlords only have a 1 in 50 chance of downloading a Florida specific rental agreement. Consequently, there is a 98% chance that a randomly selected rental agreement found on the Internet is not a Florida specific.
If you have any questions about the required disclosures that must be made in a rental agreement, please do not hesitate to contact my office at (407) 835-8688.
