Florida Eviction Answer Interview

This guided interview will create an eviction response for you. Learn More

On August 31, 2020, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis extended until October 1, 2020 his Executive Order suspending and tolling final actions in mortgage foreclosures and eviction proceeds for non-payment of rent for Floridians who experienced loss of employment, diminished wages or business income, or other monetary loss due to the Covid-19 Emergency.

On September 1, 2020, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention issued an Order declaring a national moratorium on certain residential evictions for nonpayment of rent until December 31, 2020. The Order prohibits landlords of residential properties from evicting persons who provide a sworn declaration of their inability to pay rent or other housing payments due to substantial loss of income or extraordinary out-of-pocket medical expenses. Each tenant in a household who wishes to be covered by the CDC Order must sign and deliver to their landlord a form declaration under penalty of perjury.
