Gov. Ron DeSantis extended an Executive Order on Thursday suspending any foreclosures and evictions in Florida until June 2.

In the Executive Order, Gov. DeSantis says he is suspending any foreclosures and evictions for Floridians due to COVID-19.

Here is what the order mandates:

  • Section 1. I hereby suspend and toll any statute providing for a mortgage foreclosure cause of action under Florida law for 45 days from the date of this Executive Order, including any extensions.
  • Section 2. I hereby suspend and toll any statute providing for an eviction cause of action under Florida law solely as it relates to non-payment of rent by residential tenants due to the COVID-19 emergency for 45 days from the date of this Executive Order, including any extensions.
  • Section 3. Nothing in this Executive Order shall be construed as relieving an individual from their obligation to make mortgage payments or rent payments

The original order was signed by DeSantis on April 2.
