The Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners approved Ordinance 14-81 requiring landlords to give tenants a written 60-day notice when:
Increasing rent by 5% or more
Terminating a rental agreement or lease
Effective September 13, 2022, this amendment to the County Code will require landlords to give renters a 60-day written notification for either non-renewal of a residential lease, termination of a residential lease, or an increase of the rental rate by more than five percent.
According to County officials, the ordinance is aimed at giving renters time to seek other living options if their rent goes up higher than what they can afford.
