Florida Law Restricting Foreign Real Estate Ownership, Deadline.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed Senate Bill 264 into law on May 8, 2023, restricting foreign principals from owning, having a controlling interest in, or acquiring real property in Florida. The law defines foreign principals and identifies "foreign countries of concern," including China, Russia, and Venezuela. SB 264 imposes extensive restrictions on foreign principals owning real property, especially agricultural land, and areas near critical infrastructure. Rules published on September 20, 2023, outline procedures for property purchases near military installations or critical infrastructure. An exemption exists for agricultural land owned before July 1, 2023, but post-July 1 ownership requires registration. Legal challenges persist, and noncompliance may result in civil and criminal penalties, including a $1,000 daily fine. The law is in effect, and the deadline for compliance is December 31, 2024.
