Florida Foreclosure Law

The foreclosure crisis is extremely serious and widespread in Florida with 24% of all home loans either in some stage of foreclosure or more than 90 days past due which  means that nearly one quarter of all Florida homeowners are in this mess with you.  With the total number of foreclosures nationwide exceeding three million homes at the end of 2011, an incredible 458,286 of those were in Florida.  Florida Ground Zero in Foreclosure Battle

What has further worsened the problems for Florida homeowners and the housing market overall has been the inability of the court system to handle the huge volume of foreclosure filings. A lack of sufficient court funding combined with overly aggressive and often illegal tactics by many lenders and the law firms hired by those lenders have contributed to the blockage which shows no signs of abating in the foreseeable future. As a result, the courts have a current backlog of more than 368,000 pending Florida home foreclosure cases and that number is expected to double by 2014.  Defending Florida Foreclosure Lawsuits
