Can anyone recommend a decent Central Florida lawyer that's into landlord/tenant law? I have some questions about being forced to move due to the sorry state of the house we're renting.

Depending on your income/location you can get allot of answers from your local Bar Association. They provide free legal service to the community and really, if you just have some general questions, they will be happy to help regardless of income.

If you have a lease, they can't force you to move unless it's being condemned. Just how bad are you talking?

No lease, not even a lawyer can help you.

I had such an issue years ago. Toilets backing up all over the place. Plumbers come out and say they have been there - many times.... land lord wanted to keep calling them, week after week, month after month. The fix was a new system, not the 1960's system in the house....wife and I were tired of cleaning up the waste from the floors and yard.

Landlord wouldn't budge, so I invited the city inspector in for a look at the plumbing and the number of visits from the plumbers. Of course while the inspector was there, I may have accidentally showed him the landlords wiring of the electrical panel......

We moved and got our last/security back.

Read it differently, but yeah.

If it's that shitty you have to move, you can lawyer up for breaking the lease and getting your deposits back, but thats pretty much it. Getting the city inspector out can help. They might condemn the place , no mo monies for the slumlord until they fix shit.
