Florida Community Association Law

Florida Homeowners’ Associations (HOAs) and Condominium Associations, when run well, help Florida homeowners preserve the value of most people’s greatest asset, their home. Additionally, they help build and preserve a sense of community, enhancing quality of life. Community Associations are for managing the community’s finances, maintaining the common areas throughout the community and enforcing standards in accordance with their governing documents and Florida law. Each Community Association is distinct, with its own rules, bylaws, and declarations. The attorneys at the Stanton Cronin Law Group, PL work in tandem with our Community Association clients and property managers to help ensure that the board meets its legal obligations under their governing documents and also help them make sure the homeowners are living up to their obligations.

Among the types of services routinely provided to Community Association clients are the following:

  • Collection of unpaid assessments
  • Enforcing restrictive covenants
  • Legal counsel in the application of state and local law and court rulings and administrative decisions impacting on the operation of Community Associations
  • Interpretation, amendment and enforcement of the governing documents — Declaration of Condominium, Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, the Articles of Incorporation, the Bylaws of the Association and the rules and regulations
  • Answering day-to-day questions regarding operational, technical, regulatory, and practical issues
  • Addressing maintenance and repair issues and distinguishing between those projects which require Board approval and those which require unit owner approval
  • Assisting in review and creation of contracts
