Do I have to move out of my home during the foreclosure process in Florida?
You do not have to move out of your home during the foreclosure process in Florida. Florida is a lien theory state, not a title theory state. Therefore, the borrower retains ownership of the property until the foreclosure sale and a certificate of title is issued to someone other than the borrower conveying title to the property.
The borrower should, however, be aware that the time may come when the borrower has to leave the property and make arrangements to do so, particularly if the borrower does not have any defenses to the foreclosure action.
