A Legal Conundrum In Florida
Still, it’s interesting to monitor the current debate in Florida between HOA lawyers and HOA managers. The managers want to be able to fill out minor legal paperwork to save their HOAs some money. The lawyers say that’s a third degree felony, punishable by five years in prison.
Hmmm, which side to take? A couple of Florida legislators have a proposal to spell out specifically what HOA managers can do without funneling money to their legal staff.
I’ll have to wait for opinions from experts like Jan Bergemann, the undisputed expert in Florida HOA abuse. But with the lawyers and managers gouging at each others’ throats, it all sounds like more useless expenses being assessed against homeowners.
