The Florida (un)Fair Foreclosure Act
Assault on homeowner property rights
Awards enormous legal fees to foreclosure lawyers
SB 1890: Lines 405 - 410
Awards attorney fees of 3% (So a $100k foreclosure gets $3000 and a $1,000,000 foreclosure gets $30,000 for exactly the SAME amount of work)
Waives your right to trial in court
Lines 436 - 449
Allows the court to waive your right to trial if they deem you are trying to avoid your day in court. A fundamental right should never be "deemed" to be waived!
Limits compensation of homeowners that have been mistakenly foreclosed upon!
SB 1890: Lines 231 - 290
This basically says that if the bank illegally forecloses on your home, you cannot get your home back once it has been sold to a new buyer. You are limited to only get a monetary compensation.
