The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act”) , is the result of recent efforts to overhaul the United States financial regulatory system. It represents a fundamental shift in the regulation of consumer financial services. Title X of the Act created the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB”) empowered to enforce existing and new federal consumer financial law.
In 2015, the legislature enacted two landlord tenant related laws - Florida Statutes (F.S.) Sec.82.045, F.S., creating a remedy for unlawful detention by a transient occupant of residential property, and Sec.83.561, F.S., relating to the termination of rental agreements upon foreclosure. These two laws created new remedies favoring the property rights of owners.
The foreclosure crisis substantially increased the caseload for the Florida trial court system, requiring increased judicial resources and supplemental funding from the Florida Legislature. In an attempt to alleviate this crisis, in 2013 the Legislature passed Chapter 2013-137, commonly known as the Florida Fair Foreclosure Act.
