JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A bill signed into law Monday by Gov. DeSantis now requires apartment complexes in Florida to give renters 24 hours notice before entering a unit for repairs or maintenance.

The new law, designated as “Miya’s Law”, is meant to strengthen residential tenant safety measures.

It also includes requiring background checks for prospective employees and requiring apartments to maintain a log for each dwelling unit’s keys. 

The bill is named after Miya Marcano, a young woman and Orlando student who was allegedly murdered in an apartment in 2021 by a maintenance worker who entered her unit with an apartment key fob. 

Additionally, landlords or licensees of transient and non-transient apartments to require all employees undergo a background screening as a condition of employment. 

A person may be disqualified from employment if the person has been found guilty of certain offenses involving violence and disregard for safety.
