Updated: Mar 30

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Florida's eviction moratorium is over, but some landlords said they are still feeling the effects of it.


It was intended to protect tenants from homelessness during the pandemic, but according to some landlords, it's made them never want to rent to tenants again.

Others said they will have to raise rents to compensate for lost income.



"My hands were literally tied," said landlord Jennifer Fierman. "I couldn't do anything."

Florida's eviction moratorium is over, but some landlords said they are still feeling the effects of it.

"It made sense to keep the property, right? Because it was easy, he was paying rent, and it was great," she said. "When COVID hit, the rent payments started getting kind of spotty."

Fierman was frustrated by the lack of recourse available to her at the time.

"I found it to be mind-blowing that there was literally nothing I could do," she said. "That's my takeaway from my whole experience."

As soon as the moratorium was lifted, Fierman said she was able to move forward with an eviction.
