I recently wrote in Fox Rothschild’s Consumer Law Ledger about a Florida appellate court’s ruling that the statute of limitations for a negligent appraisal claim begins to run on the date that the loan is funded, even if a loan default does not occur until much later.

I’ve been told that a Motion for Rehearing En Banc or for Certification for the Florida Supreme Court will be filed by the lender. So, we may not have heard the end of the Llano Financing Group, LLC v. Petit case just yet.

We’ll keep an eye on this one to see if there are any changes to this ruling.
