Gov. DeSantis extends mortgage and eviction relief through July 1

Orlando, Fla. — It’s the first of the month, and for many Floridians, it’s another due date for rent or mortgage payments  that they still cannot afford due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Gov. Ron DeSantis signed an executive order Monday extending the mortgage foreclosure and eviction relief in Florida.

The original order had been set to expire Tuesday, but will now be extended until July 1.

The pandemic caused record-breaking unemployment in the state, leaving many renters unable to pay their landlords and home owners unable to pay their mortgage.

Clerks of courts in some counties stopped processing eviction filings after the governor's initial order, but others did not.
