Eviction Assistance By Florida County
In early October, Spectrum News 13 posted an article about the various assistance programs available in counties throughout Florida. Some of this information has since become outdated. It is therefore important that residents go to the following websites to get current information about the coronavirus housing assistance available in the following counties:
The state also has housing funds available through a $250 million allotment of CARES Act funds to the Florida Housing Finance Corporation. Of course, not every family will qualify for state or local assistance. In these circumstances, it is important to be prepared for the expiration of eviction and foreclosure moratoriums. (Federal rules preventing both types of actions will expire on December 31.) A Florida real estate attorney can help you identify all potential programs that could help you stay in your home. An attorney can also help negotiate a repayment plan with your landlord or mortgage lender. It is very costly to go through the legal process of eviction of foreclosure, so many creditors would prefer to agree to a repayment plan rather than pay these fees.
The most important thing you can do to prevent eviction is to take action now. The more time an attorney has to work on your case, the better options he or she will have for keeping you in your home. If you wait until the eviction ban expires on December 31, it may be too late. There may still time to access housing program funds and bring your rent payments current before that happens.
