BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — You could be out on the street for the new year. That’s the word from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is letting his ongoing order prohibiting evictions expire in November. The order has been in place during the COVID-19 crisis. The crisis continues. The order does not.
In announcing the end of the Florida order, DeSantis points to the CDC which has its own national ban on evocations in place for anyone who proves to a landlord that they can’t pay rent. That ban continues through the end of 2020 — it’s conceivable that it could be extended.
Here is the language from Gov. DeSantis’ communications office:
Today, Governor DeSantis permitted Executive Order 20-211 to expire. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently enacted a nationwide residential evictions Order that provides federal eviction relief to persons who submit a valid Declaration to their landlord regarding their inability to pay rent. Executive Order 20-211 had provided 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.
