Is the STR ban legal?

The Governor of Florida has extended his Short Term Rental ban indefinitely. Governor DeSantis has discriminated against Short Term Rental Owners by allowing resorts, hotels & timeshares to continue renting during this time. For example, a private property owner in a condo building that is labeled as a resort is not allowed to rent his or her home, but the neighboring unit that is a timeshare can be rented. This ban has been detrimental to STR property owners and managers, forcing some companies into bankruptcy and some owners into foreclosure. The ban is in violation of homeowners' fundamental rights to due process and rights to contract. 

In response to this, has teamed up with rental advocate Karen Lugo and will file an emergency injunction against the short term rental ban.
