Hands - Holding HouseFlorida homeowners facing foreclosures may be able to obtain a 90 day reprieve or stalling on their case due to Hurricane Irma. Florida and Puerto Rico residents in disaster designated areas can obtain what is called or referred to as a “moratorium” on their foreclosure and forbearance on foreclosure proceedings.  However, the 90 day moratorium does not apply to ALL loans or ALL counties.  Certain restrictions for the government assistance apply for example, to FHA insured home mortgages.

Moreover, the county must be designated as eligible  As of the writing of this article, the following counties were eligible: Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Brevard, Broward, Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Collier, Columbia, DeSoto, Duval, Flagler, Gilchrist, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Indian River, Lake, Lee, Levy, Manatee, Marion, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Nassau, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Putnam, Sarasota, Seminole, St. Johns, St. Lucie, Sumter, Suwannee, Union, Volusia.

If you have a pending foreclosure, foreclosure sale or foreclosure trial, you may be eligible to hire us to file a Motion to have the moratorium stop your case for the 90 days in order for you to recover.
