Can I be evicted during the COVID-19 pandemic? The answer is yes. Now, if you’re viewing this, this answer is for Florida and that the governor of the state of Florida has latest order has said that you cannot evict a tenant if for nonpayment or rent, if the nonpayment of rent as associated with the pandemic, just because you decide not to pay your rent is not good enough, you have, it has to be related to the pandemic. And this is good until August 31st, after which time all your rent can be due, unless they extend it. And you can then be a victim for all your past due rent. Also, you can be evicted in the event that your lease has been terminated, or if you have not complied with the provisions of the lease. There are any number of reasons why you can still be evicted. The exception being, if the reason you weren’t able to pay your rent is because of COVID-19. Now this, the governor of the state of Florida’s order is not being followed. Consistency can consistently throughout Florida. And it varies from County to County and sometimes even judge to judge as to how they treat this. Also, if you are living in a federal laid back, mortgage, facility or federal housing, there is a federal statute or federal order that you cannot be evicted, the period, until the end of August. Again, this also may be extended. So,hopefully that gives you some guidance. And if you have some questions, give me a call at (727) 847-2288.
