31-600x325House Bill 841 was signed into law by Governor Scott on March 23, 2018.  This Bill defines changes to Community Association Laws:  FS-718 (Condo), 719 (Co-op) and 720 (HOA) and will be effective July 1, 2018.  Most of the changes are minor adjustments to many of the condo laws that were implemented in 2017.  Probably the most significant near-term change is related to condominiums required to host a website (associations with 150+ units).  These condo associations originally had until July 1, 2018 to setup a website.  This deadline has been pushed out to January 1, 2019.  There is also some new language that helps electric vehicle owners in condos as it relates to installing charging stations.

For a more detailed analysis of the changes, including those for HOAs and Co-ops, please see this summary by Jeff Rembaum of Kaye Bender Rembaum.

    Still have not seen any changes that put any right in unit owners hands. Unit owners don’t / never really have a platform on which our voices are heard.

        I agree with Ivanhoe A Wallen. There should be a protected page on that website (only accesible to condo owners and association employees through a username and password) where we can air our grievances. By posting in plain view our issues and concerns, and violations that have been overlooked or ignored by management /condo board of directors, we are holding them accountable! If that’s not allowed we, condo owners, can set up our own website (a complaint box) that way we can monitor how management /condo board of directors are performing and if rules and condo bylaws are being enforced.
