JEAN R. LOLLI a/k/a JEAN LOLLI, Appellant, v. SUNTRUST BANK, Appellee.

H. Daniel McKillop of McKillop Law Firm, Sarasota, for Appellant. Philip D. Storey, Daniel R. Blundy, and Amanda Renee Murphy of Alvarez, Winthrop, Thompson & Storey, P.A., Orlando, for Appellee.


NOT FINAL UNTIL TIME EXPIRES TO FILE REHEARING MOTION AND, IF FILED, DETERMINED Appeal from the Circuit Court for Sarasota County; Thomas M. Gallen, Senior Judge. H. Daniel McKillop of McKillop Law Firm, Sarasota, for Appellant. Philip D. Storey, Daniel R. Blundy, and Amanda Renee Murphy of Alvarez, Winthrop, Thompson & Storey, P.A., Orlando, for Appellee. PER CURIAM.

Jean Lolli appeals from a final judgment of foreclosure in favor of SunTrust Bank. We affirm without comment in all but one respect. In its computation of the amount due under the promissory note and mortgage, the final judgment includes items for title search expenses, attorney's fees, court costs, service of summons, and property registration. SunTrust offered no evidence with respect to any of these items at trial, and it properly concedes that the evidence was insufficient to support their inclusion in the judgment. Accordingly, we reverse the final judgment to that limited extent and remand with instructions to the trial court to enter an amended final judgment that excludes those items. See Tracey v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., 264 So. 3d 1152, 1162-66 (Fla. 2d DCA 2019) (reconciling this court's remand instructions in foreclosure cases and holding that absent exceptional circumstances, a party that fails to prove its case at trial does not get a second bite at the apple on remand).

Affirmed in part; reversed in part; remanded with instructions. SALARIO, J., and CASE, JAMES R., ASSOCIATE SENIOR JUDGE, Concur. ATKINSON, J., Concurs in result only.
