Kenneth Dante Murena is thrilled to report that Governor Ron DeSantis has signed into law Florida’s Uniform Commercial Real Estate Receivership Act (UCRERA), which the Florida Legislature unanimously passed earlier this year. The Florida Bar Business Law Section’s Task Force on UCRERA took up the laboring oar of revising and having UCRERA enacted in Florida and, after four years, in collaboration with the Florida Bar’s Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section (RPPTLS), the Florida Banker’s Association, the Florida Land Title Association, and the Uniform Law Commission, the Act is now law in Florida.
Mr. Murena would like to acknowledge the tireless efforts of the Task Force, including the Honorable Mindy Mora, the Honorable Edward LaRose, Amanda Fernandez, Diane Wells, Adina Pollan, Zach Hyman, Amir Isaiah, Donald Workman, Douglas Bates, Lynn Sherman, Daniel Newman, Daniel Stermer, and David Peterson, the invaluable contributions of Manny Farach as the Vice Chair of the Business Law Section’s Legislative Committee and liaison to the RPPTLS, and Mark Stein, as the Chair of the Legislative Committee and a driving force during the home stretch (year) of this effort, and the Business Law Section’s incredible attorneys in Tallahassee, Aimee Diaz Lyon, and Douglas Bell.
Finally, special thanks to the legislative sponsors of UCRERA, Senator Lori Berman and Representative Mike Beltran. Mr. Murena is deeply honored and proud to have led this amazing team effort, which is sure to have a beneficial impact on Florida jurisprudence for years to come.
