Landlords try to stop Florida rent control initiative | Business

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The ballots haven’t even been printed yet, but already a group of Florida landlords, apartment managers and real estate agents wants to block voters from deciding on a measure that would impose year-long rent controls at a theme park center that was one of the fastest growing metro areas in the US

The Florida Apartment Association and the Florida Association of Realtors last week sued Orange County, Fla., in an attempt to overturn a ballot initiative aimed at limiting how much landlords can raise rents. If passed by voters this fall, it would be the first such measure in decades in the Sunshine State.
