Legal Question in Bankruptcy in Florida

I have a bankruptcy discharge from 2 years ago. My house was included. It has never been foreclosed on. Is it still legal for me to live in it? My name is still on the deed.

If you are the owner, no court order has been granted which evicts you from the property, and there are no local laws prohibiting such residence, you may still live there. Even if the foreclosure process has begun with the serving of a complaint and summons to you, you

may still live there until the court evicts you as part of a summary judgment or final judgment

and schedule for selling the property, transfer of ownership, etc.
