Miami Dade County’s residential eviction moratorium may be protecting squatters.
Miami-Dade County has not been enforcing evictions and homeowners, can’t believe the county is protecting criminals.
The CDC’s moratorium on evictions remain in effect but does not protect squatters. If someone has a specific issue with squatters, they can contact the department’s Economic Crimes Bureau.
Mayor Levine Cava did had something to say when asked about squatters.
“We are not preventing the removal of squatters,” she said. “Squatters are not protected by the courts. Those matters have always been available to call into the police department.”
For now, those squatters still have someone else’s roof over their heads, rent free.
