Elect Peter Richter

Elect Peter Richter for Florida State Representative District 106 (Naples / Marco)

Stop HB213

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.
