Is there such a thing as 'Renting As-Is' from a realtor in the state of Florida.?

Realtor is refusing to replace stove because he says I'm renting As-Is.

I read under the Florida rental laws the realtor has the responsibility to maintain the renters living conditions so far as major appliances are concerned.

Therefore how can I rent a house (not an apartment) As Is?

    Read your lease. It should state in writing that the tenant is responsible for appliances. Where the lease is silent, the law assumes that what is in place upon move-in is the landlord's responsibility and these must be supplied in good working order.

    When there is no lease, it is a month to month tenancy in Florida, and again, the law assumes the responsibility lies with the landlord. For their to be a binding agreement that a tenant is responsible, it cannot be an oral agreement.

    So, if you have a lease, read the lease to see what it says. If there is no lease, you would have to sue the landlord to have a judge force them to follow the law.

    Are appliances included in your lease? If not, the landlord does not have to furnish them.

    The law doesn't require the landlord to furnish either a stove, refrigerator, or dishwasher to make the premises habitable. Yes....if the lease/rental agreement states that you are responsible for repairs on appliances.....then you are.

    Read your lease to find out who is responsible for maintaining the appliances. If it is silent on that issue, you can google and read FL's landlord/tenant laws. You will find that the landlord is only required to provide and maintain your source of heat, therefore you will have to repair/replace the stove at your expense.

    Take the realtor to Small Claims court. Can you negotiate with the owner to get a stove? If your lease has something different from your state law, you have to go with your lease agreement.

    most areas don't require the landlord to provide a stove...if there is a broken one in place, you have a case to make them remove it so you can get your own.

    laws only say LL needs to maintain habitability issues and anything in the lease...no stove in the lease, LL does not need to maintain it in most places

    Under Florida law, the landlord or realtor are not required to provide a stove unless such a requirement is written within the lease.  You should buy your own stove and take it with you when you leave.
