2017 Florida Statutes
(1) A lessee who fails to make timely rental payments has the right to reinstate the original rental-purchase agreement without losing any rights or options previously acquired under the rental-purchase agreement, if:
(a) The lessee promptly surrenders the rental property to the lessor or its agent upon request; and
(b) The lessee tenders the reinstatement fees within 60 days after the expiration of the last rental period for which the lessee made a timely payment.
(2) Before reinstating the rental-purchase agreement, a lessor may require a lessee to pay unpaid rental payments, including any rental renewal charges incurred, a reinstatement fee of not more than $5, and a delivery charge if redelivery of the rental property is necessary.
(3) If reinstatement occurs pursuant to this section, the lessor shall provide the lessee with the same personal property rented by the lessee prior to the reinstatement or with substitute personal property of comparable quality and condition. If substitute personal property is provided, the lessor must provide new disclosures to the lessee, including all of the information required by s. 559.9233.
