2011 Legislative Update:  What do this year’s changes in Florida law mean for you and your association?

Note:
At the June 18th SCCA meeting, our speaker called attention to new statutory provisions requiring specific text to be used for the written notice associations must give to tenants of delinquent owners in order to require the tenant to pay rent to the association rather than the owner.  That change is part of Florida House Bill 1195, which is effective July 1, 2011, and applies to condominium, cooperative, and homeowners’ associations.


Click HERE for the text of portions of Florida Statutes Chapters 718, 719, and 720, as modified by HB 1195, dealing with the collection of rent from the tenants of delinquent owners, which include the new required notice text. Also see our “Legislation” page for more information on HB 1195, including the complete text of the bill.
