Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtonexaminer.com: “DeSantis extends Florida eviction and foreclosure embargo to July 1”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday night extended the state’s eviction moratorium to July 1, hours before it was set to expire Tuesday.

On Friday, DeSantis said he was undecided about extending his 45-day order and had not addressed the matter until issuing an executive order at 7:45 p.m. Monday without comment.

With temporary legal protections in as many as 25 states running out for millions of out-of-work Americans who are renters, a wave of evictions could unfold within the coming weeks, if not days. DeSantis’ executive order prevents that from happening in Florida for at least another 30 days.

More than 38 million Americans have filed jobless claims since mid-March, including 2 million Floridians. A significant portion are renters making less than $40,000 a year and many, including 956,133 Floridians, either have not received first unemployment payments or money from federal COVID-19 stimulus assistance.

In a survey released in May by the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly a quarter of respondents said they missed their last rent or mortgage payment and had little to no confidence they would pay rent on time in June.
