The Florida 5-Year Statute of Limitation Foreclosure Rule is Complex

Mon Jun 2, 2014 by on Florida Law News

Homeowner’s need to stand their ground and understand their rights. The application of Florida’s 5 year Statute of Limitations relating to a bank’s ability to foreclose a home (once 5 year’s has lapsed since the bank accelerated the loan)is in flux and a moving target. The Florida Supreme Court will now likely get involved and have the final say as various lower courts are all over on the issue. Until the issue is adequately addressed many homes will remain unsellable and remain unmarketable. Homeowners, (and yes even banks) have the right to know where they stand. Until that happens the application of the Florida five year statute of limitations will clearly hold back the entire Florida economy. These issues are complex and Oppenheim Law is on top of it.
