Support HB 425-Property rights are advanced when owners have the freedom to rent out their property as they so choose

Many property owners in Florida generate extra income by renting their homes to tourist vacationing in Florida. These types of rentals also help Florida’s tourism by allowing families to save money by staying together in a home instead of multiple hotel rooms. This flexibility promotes more tourism, which produces $67 billion in economic activity every year.

HB 425 prevents local governments from passing new regulations on vacation rentals based solely on their classification, while not affecting local homeowners’ associations and neighborhoods that have adopted their own covenants, declarations, or bylaws.

Local governments have exploited current rental laws with excessive fines, penalties and fees. HB 425 will safeguard property owners from overreaching local governments with state-wide standards that protect property rights.


HB 425 will be heard in the House Careers and Competition Subcommittee on Tuesday March 28th, 2017 at 8:00 AM

Call and e-mail the members of the House Careers and Competition Subcommittee and tell them to support HB 425 and protect our property rights.

    I’m afraid I’m going to have to disagree and oppose this bill. Our community has been a victim of this air B-N-B mentality. Out of state persons and or groups buying properties in the community for weekend rental has led to wild parties all hours of the night, invasion of neighboring properties and unauthorized vehicles and persons in common areas.

    First hand experience says this is a BAD bill and should be opposed
