Home Solicitation Tips

Door to Door Sales

Through the years, salespeople have knocked on many doors to sell everything from encyclopedias, to home repair services, but the laws have changed. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  1. According to Florida law, individuals who engage in certain door-to-door solicitation activities that sell, lease or rent consumer goods or services with a purchase price in excess of $25.00 are required to obtain a Home Solicitation Permit; issued by the Clerk of the Court.
  2. Ask to see their Home Solicitation permit, a form of personal identification, as well as a business card with the telephone number and address of the business.
