Florida Foreclosure Backlog Dips Below 300,000 for First Time in Years

Florida’s foreclosure courts have 299,055 cases pending as of the end of August, the first time in five years that fewer than 300,000 cases were backlogged.

According to a new report from the Office of the State Courts Administrator, judges cleared 41,547 cases statewide in July and August, including 2,793 in Palm Beach County.

Palm Beach’s backlog now stands at 25,697, down 22 percent from July 1, 2012.

Florida’s courts have been hustling to clear foreclosures from their dockets since getting an infusion of money from the legislature to hire additional senior judges and case managers to process files.

But it may not be how fast the courts are moving as much as the drastic drop in new filings from lenders since the state’s new foreclosure law went into effect July 1.
