Florida Adopts The Uniform Commercial Real Estate Receivership Act

Voiced by Amazon Polly

As of July 1, 2020, Florida has adopted the Uniform Commercial Real Estate Receivership Act and authorizes a court to appoint a receiver, who acting as the court’s agent, takes possession of, manages, and, in some cases, transfers or sells property that is in danger of waste, loss, or diminution in value. The law governs interests in real property, as well as incidental personal property, related to the use or operation of real property. However, the statute does not apply to real property improved by one or two dwelling units which includes the homestead of an individual owner or an affiliate of an individual owner.

This new law codifies the common law of receivership, in some cases clarifying or providing more specific procedures for the rules governing receiverships.
