Foreclosure Moratorium

On June 1, 2020, Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order Number 20-137, which extends the moratorium on mortgage foreclosures in Florida until July 1, 2020. The moratorium on foreclosures was previously scheduled to expire on June 2, 2020. As has been the case with prior executive orders, we are continuing to take the position that we must suspend and place on hold all mortgage foreclosures currently pending in Florida until July 1, 2020. This means we may not file any new cases, proceed with any hearings or foreclosure sales that may be scheduled before July 1, 2020, seek any defaults, complete service of process or move for entry of a final judgment of foreclosure. If further executive orders are issued or further guidance is provided by the Courts or Executive Branch related to this most recent order, we will reevaluate and provide further insight and guidance.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this most resent order or any other matters related to Covid-19, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or one of the other attorney’s at Sorenson Van Leuven.
