Yesterday, the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section of the Florida Bar (RPPTL) joined FLTA in endorsing Rep. Kathleen Passidomo’s foreclosure bill. Many of you will recall that at our urging, her bill includes several provisions that are very important to the title industry and the sanctity of land title in Florida. See the bulletin here. We also were quoted extensively in the Naples Daily News regarding this bill. More here.
Given the current focus of our Legislature on reapportionment and budget matters, the conventional wisdom is that little else will be addressed during this session. Given the importance of resolving the current foreclosure crisis, we are hopeful that the legislature will address this important bill.
