HB 87 signed by Governor Scott

Yesterday, June 7, 2013, Governor Rick Scott signed HB 87 officially making it law in Florida.  The terms of the bill in plain English are found here in my previous post.

It appears this new law will go into effect on July 1, 2013, in approximately 3 weeks.

If you own investment property, you are urged to seek an attorney immediately, even before foreclosure is filed, as this law greatly effects your rights in your property.

Generally, if your foreclosure case already in court is not an investment property, and is the house you live in and/or your homestead in Florida, then the new laws generally will have no effect on you.

If you have questions about your case or how the new HB 87 law(s) can/will effect you, please feel free to email me.
