Foreclosure & Eviction Relief Extended to July 1In breaking news, Florida Governor Ron Desantis signed an order on June 1, 2020 extending foreclosure and eviction relief in Florida to July 1, 2020. As always, we will continue to handle cases in compliance with this order, and will inform you about impact on your cases.
Broward County, Florida (Ft. Lauderdale) Chief Judge issued an order effective June 2, 2020 that states:
“All plaintiffs in residential foreclosure cases shall file a verified statement of compliance with the CARES Act in the same format as provided in Attachment A: declaring under penalty of perjury whether or not the property subject of the foreclosure proceeding has a federally backed mortgage loan that is insured by the Federal Housing Administration.”
No judgment can be entered or sale set or rescheduled unless this verified statement, which can be signed by the plaintiff or plaintiff's attorney, is filed.
