Kicking off the show was Adria Jensen.  Adria is an Attorney with Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP, and her focus is general business and real estate litigation including contract disputes, landlord/tenant law and creditors’ rights.  Adria joined me on the phone line this morning to talk about the recent passing of Florida Statute 83.561 “Termination of Rental Agreement Upon Foreclosure”.  This law which was signed into law on June 2, 2015 is designed to give tenants some degree of protection following the sun setting of the National Protecting Tenants in Foreclosure Act which expired at the end of 2014 without renewal.  Adria goes into depth on some of the provisions of this new law, one of which dictates that tenants inside a foreclosed property now have 30 days to remain in the property which begins after receiving written notice from the new owner of their intent to terminate the tenant’s occupancy.  The new owners do not assumer the textbook definition of landlord and may move to evict said tenant after the expiration of the 30 day notice if they fail to vacate.  Adria also touches on transient situations of which Florida Statute 82.045 addressed on its passage  on June 2, 2015 and effective as of this past July 1st.  The law which strengthened owners rights when they are victims of illegal occupancies by transients (squatters), gives them the ability to have them removed without going through a civil action given they have provided a sworn affidavit to law enforcement.  Landlord/Tenant law is a bumpy road with many facets and Adria Jensen is well versed in this area of Law.  If you are in need of assistance with a property dispute or other area of Real Estate, Adria is your go to Attorney – reach out to her directly at 941-364-2739 or email at and learn more about their firm at!
