Representatives Kathleen Passidomo (District 106, Collier County) and George Moraitis, Jr. (District 93, Broward County) have supported the passing of House Bill 87, which denies residents the right to take their homes back after a wrongful foreclose.
According to House Bill 87, if a bank forecloses on a property, and if it is later discovered that the bank did not have standing to foreclose or that it was the incorrect bank with no beneficial interest in the loan, then the only available option to the homeowner is to sue for damages. The homeowner will no longer be afforded the opportunity to get his or her home back from the bank once the foreclosure has been finalized.
The people of Florida are demanding that proposed House Bill 87 not be allowed to pass into law in any form. The Bill is deemed unconstitutional because it violates Article 1, Sections 9 and 10 of Florida’s Constitution, which states that it is unlawful to pass any law or any Judicial and/or Executive Branch process which deprives any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law, and it prohibits the passing of any law that impairs the obligations of contracts.
If House Bill 87 is not killed, constituents and citizens of Florida, and any Florida property owner, will lose their individual property and due process rights. The “Kill House Bill 87” petition states:
“The people demand that House Bill 87 be voted down and not passed into law, as the proposed Bill is no more than another brazen attempt to further deprive U.S. citizens of their constitutional rights to due process of law in Florida’s courts, and will be used as a stepping stone to change the State of Florida into a non-judicial foreclosure state.”
The petition’s current goal is to gather 2,000 signatures. If you would like to support the voting down of the unconstitutional House Bill 87, then please sign the petition below.
