Gov. DeSantis Extends Executive Order on Foreclosures and Evictions

As the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) continues to remain open and continuing all business activity, we want to keep Florida families and stakeholders abreast of housing updates.

In Executive Order 20-180, Governor DeSantis extended Executive Order 20-94 that provides targeted, temporary relief from certain mortgage foreclosures and evictions until September 1, 2020, without relieving an individual’s obligation to make mortgage payments and rent.  The Governor has also amended the order to ​specify that final actions in eviction or foreclosure proceedings are paused only when the tenant or homeowner has been adversely affected by the COVID-19 emergency” which is defined as “loss of employment, diminished wages or business income, or other monetary loss realized during the Florida State of Emergency directly impacting the ability of a residential tenant to make rent payments.”Click here to review.
