Update on Tenant Protections

The Tenants Bill of Rights previously adopted by the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners is no longer in effect in accordance with a new Florida state law. HB 1417, Residential Tenancies, went into effect on July 1, 2023, pre-empting local governments from regulating landlord-tenant relationships. For more information, see HB 1417.

Complaints about housing discrimination or unsafe living conditions can still be reported locally to the Pinellas County Office of Human Rights or Code Enforcement. Learn more.
