Florida Legislature Enacts Recent Changes to Statute of Limitations and Statute of Repose Affecting Construction Litigation

by Tripp Scott's William C. Davell and Stephanie C. Mazzola

On April 13, 2023, Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law Florida SB 360, which, among, other things, shortens the statute-of-repose period for commencing an action based on the design, planning, or construction of improvements to real property.  See ch. 2023-22, Laws of Fla. (2023).  The new law went into effect immediately upon signing; however, the amendments to the statute of limitations and statute of repose set forth in section 95.11(3)(c), Florida Statutes (2023), apply only to actions commenced on or after the act’s effective date, regardless of when the cause of action accrued. See ch. 2023-22, § 3, Laws of Fla. (2023).  An exception is that any action that would not have been barred under section 95.11(3)(c) before the act was amended “must be commenced on or before July 1, 2024.” Id.
