During 2020 and 2021, many South Florida Landlords struggled to remove non-paying Tenants. This was due to the Federal Moratorium on Evictions instituted by the CDC. On August 26, 2021 the Supreme Court invalidated this National Order declaring it unconstitutional. This created a rush of Evictions being filed.

How has the Recent Supreme Court Ruling Affected South Florida Landlords?
Prior to the ruling, Broward and Palm Beach Courts had thousands of pending evictions because of the Moratorium. Not only did this lengthen the Eviction process, it caused Landlords to lose a substantial amount of rent. Further, removing a Tenant for non-payment was prevented by the CDC Declaration Form. If they could meet the requirements, the case could not proceed until October 3, 2021.
On August 26, 2021, the Supreme Court ruled that the Moratorium was unconstitutional. This provided immediate relief to Landlords as they could start evicting non-paying Tenants. While some Courts still recognize the right to obtain rental assistance, Evictions can now proceed. On the other hand, the ruling has created confusion among Landlords. The biggest question they have is: How do I proceed since my case did not progress because of the Moratorium? If that Landlord had not been represented and filed their own Eviction, we can appear on their behalf. While Evictions are not complex, they can be tricky if not handled properly.
Why it is now important to Speak to Broward County Eviction Lawyers?
As stated, the amount of Evictions filed after the Ruling have increased. Combined with the cases filed during the Pandemic, the Courts are facing an overflow. If you have a pending case, it is important to speak to a Broward County Eviction Lawyer to determine your next step. Some Courts are still sending their cases to mediation to allow the parties to resolve any and all past issues including non-payment of rent. One of the advantages of hiring a Broward and Palm Beach Eviction Lawyer is that they will avoid any further delays in your case.
Most unrepresented Landlords are not familiar with the Eviction Process and that can be devastating to their case. As a result of the recent news regarding the Moratorium, there is a better chance for them to remove the non-paying Tenant.
