Florida Law in Homesteads

HOMESTEAD-SIXIn Southern Walls, Inc v. Stilwell Corp, the 5th District Court in Florida, in discussing the Florida Homestead Exemption, stated, “although a castle to one may be a shanty to another, the law does not so discriminate. Thus, regardless of whether one’s castle is a traditional home or a modest cottage, whether it is a rural farmhouse or a villa by the sea, whether it floats or sits on wheels, whether it is a condominium or a co-op, it should receive the same protection under Florida law”.
