Florida Statutes Section 56.22 - Execution Sales; Time, Date, And Place Of Sale. (Fla. Stat. § 56.22)

56.22 Execution sales; time, date, and place of sale.—All sales of property under legal process shall take place at the time, date, and place advertised in the notice of the sheriff’s sale on any day of the week except Saturday and Sunday and shall continue from day to day until such property is disposed of. Property not effectively disposed of at the initial sheriff’s sale may be readvertised, as provided in s. 56.21, upon receipt of an additional deposit to cover costs incurred in connection with the maintenance of the property under legal process. In the event no additional deposit is received by the sheriff, the property may be returned to the defendant; if the defendant refuses to accept such property, the property may be returned to a third party, such as a lienholder, upon presentation of a proper court order directing such return. If none of the above can be accomplished, such property shall be disposed of as unclaimed or abandoned.
