Florida Multifamily Communities Now Required to Establish Key Control Procedures Under Miya’s Law
As of January 1, 2023, Florida apartment communities must comply with all requirements associated with SB 898, a new state law known as Miya’s Law. One of the legislation’s rules is that multifamily properties should establish key control policies and procedures. As part of that process, they need to maintain a log that tracks issued and returned keys. According to the Florida Apartment Association, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) will start verifying proof of compliance as soon as April 13, 2023.
To help property managers and owners prepare, KeyTrak has published a quick guide called “10 Electronic Key Control Tips to Simplify Miya’s Compliance.” The guide offers simple tips on how to enforce key control policies and maintain a verifiable key control log.

In addition to maintaining key control processes, the law also requires apartment communities to:
- Run background screenings on employees as a condition of employment.
- Provide 24 hours’ notice before entering an apartment home (increased from 12 hours’ notice).
- Avoid hourly rental of an accommodation.
