Originally set to end June 1.
However, real estate attorneys warn it doesn’t really provide economic assistance.
“There is no remission of rent under the CARES Act, or the like,” said Lawyer Richard Heiden. “It’s only a delay, so people still owe money, so we only postpone the inevitable.”
Heiden, a local real estate attorney, said if you face foreclosure or eviction, it is time to get some good legal advice on how to proceed, even though the state freeze is extended.
Currently, anyone who lives in a home supported by a federal loan is protected by the CARES Act, which prevents seizure and eviction until July 25.
Then, there were state orders that had just been expanded by the Governor, and many local governments, such as Hillsborough County, also issued their own freeze on evictions.
Put all the orders together, and that makes the process confusing.
Heiden said if you have financial problems, you should talk to your owners and see what they want to do for you.
