Governor Extends Florida Foreclosure and Eviction Moratorium Until July 1

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed Executive Order 20-137 on Monday which extends Florida’s moratorium of evictions and mortgage foreclosures until July 1, 2020.

DeSantis suspended mortgage foreclosure and eviction actions in Florida on April 2, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Governor’s original executive order was set to expire on June 2, 2020.

Florida’s eviction suspension only applies to non-payment of rent by residential tenants.

Nothing in the executive order shall be construed as relieving an individual from their obligation to make mortgage payments or rent payments.
