Florida legislature trying to bust foreclosure backlog – again
For the third consecutive year, Florida lawmakers will attempt to fix the state’s foreclosure court mire with legislation that streamlines the process and, in some cases, gives banks quicker access to repossession.
The proposed legislation, called the Florida Fair Foreclosure Act, has yet to be filed, but Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, R-Naples, is passing around a draft bill and seeking input.
She said she’s received “hundreds and hundreds” of email responses to her request and is making revisions before filing it for consideration during the 2012 legislative session.
But some foreclosure defense attorneys fear the proposed legislation will be a step toward making Florida a non-judicial foreclosure state where banks don’t have to seek a court’s permission to foreclose on a struggling borrower.
Others say there are positive changes for homeowners in the plan, but they are wary about what it will look like after it’s vetted by Tallahassee power-brokers and business-friendly committees.
