The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issues order on Evictions

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' issued Executive Order 20-211 regarding state eviction protections has now expired.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently enacted a nationwide residential Evictions Order that provides for federal eviction relief to persons who submit a valid Declaration to their landlord regarding their inability to pay rent. According to the Governor's Office, Executive Order 20-211 had provided for a limited, one-month extension of state eviction relief to persons affected by the COVID-19 emergency. Executive Order 20-211 pertaining to the State's mortgage foreclosure and eviction relief was permitted to expire to avoid any confusion over whether the CDC's evictions Order should apply in a particular circumstance. The CDC's evictions Order expires on December 31, 2020, unless extended.
