Hi Gino: Florida is a lien theory state. The buyer holds a deed to the property throughout the term of the mortgage and the title is held by the buyer. This makes foreclosure proceedings a little more difficult than in a title theory state, where the lender holds title.

FYI, here's a link to a map showing the distibution of lien theory and title theory states throughout the country: http://title.grabois.com/

Interesting question!

Lien Theory. The mortgage is a lien on the property.
