Surplus funds refer to excess funds that remain after a property is sold at auction due to foreclosure, including association foreclosure, mortgage foreclosure, or tax-deed foreclosure. These funds belong to the original homeowner or heirs to the original homeowner.

If you owned property that has gone through a foreclosure or tax sale, or if you are an heir to property that has gone through a sale, you may be entitled to claim these funds.

The funds we are referring to are held in the county court registry and are the result of an association foreclosure, a mortgage foreclosure, or a tax-deed foreclosure sale where the property sold for more than the amount it was being foreclosed on for.

The State of Florida Legislature has specific laws on who is entitled to surplus funds. Our attorney uses legal terminology, but we provide a simplified interpretation for you. We can help you determine if you are eligible to claim the surplus funds.
