Community Update

November 2017

A Modern Approach

We continue our efforts to modernize our Community Update (CUP) so that we can provide you current and candid insight on operating and running community associations.

CUP now resides in our blog’s digital universe, floridacondohoalawblog.com. The blog is dedicated to providing an online resource regarding developments in community association law, Q and A, legislation, and other related news.

We will also be uploading our archived CUP issues to the blog under their own CUP designation so you can easily find them. You will also be able to search for our articles using common search engines (google, safari, etc.).

Going forward, you will receive intermittent updates highlighting new articles from the Florida Condo Law Blog. It will include a “Did You Know” section that provides information on new classes, services, and our lawyers.

We hope you enjoy our new format and this inaugural issue.

In this issue

This issue contains three articles we think you will find particularly helpful.

The first article examines the dilemma many condominium associations face at one time or another: whether or not to “end it all” and terminate the condominium and, if so, how to do it.

This Is The End. . . Or Is It?: Retroactive Application Of The Amendments To The Condominium Act Relating To Termination

The second article, timely in the wake of Hurricane Irma, discusses who is legally responsible for which repairs after a hurricane or other natural disaster.

Responsibility For Repairs After A Hurricane Or Storm

Our third article takes a close look at whether or not a community association should adopt a new Code of Conduct for its board of directors.

Conflicts of Interest – Is it time for a new Code of Conduct?

Did you know?

That the avalanche of fraudulent emotional support animal (ESA) requests is having a negative effect on those with legitimate needs to get the service and support they need. That’s why our Community Association Leadership Lobby (CALL) is targeting fraudulent ESA requests as its primary lobbying initiative for the 2018 Legislative Session.
