Late Tuesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis extended the statewide ban on evictions and foreclosures in Florida amid the COVID-19 pandemic until Aug. 1. The ban was scheduled to expire today, July 1.
The move came as a slight shock, since DeSantis did not respond to a question about it at a news conference Tuesday.
Landlords can still send out eviction notices, but law enforcement will not enforce them and court hearings needed to remove a tenant from a property won’t happen.
