Just in case you thought that the Condo Safety Bill SB-4D – enacted during a special session last summer – would make all the inspection requirements the same for the whole State of Florida.




As Eric pointed out in his blog on Monday the inspection process already differs in Miami/Dade County and Broward County, the two counties with the most condo hi-rises affected by the new inspection rules.


And it seems that there is no general rule in place for the new “milestone structural inspections”.


With other words: If you are the board of a hi-rise condo (over 75 ft. in heights) you need to inquire with your local County Code Structural Compliance Office to find out what the process in your county is.


And in the latest news the Florida Building Commission published a report asking the legislature to expand the requirement for safety inspections for all hi-rise condos, not just the ones located in costal areas.


Life is difficult enough, but it seems that our government wants to make it even more difficult!

Jan Bergemann is president of Cyber Citizens For Justice, Florida 's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group. CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in community  

associations. He moved to Florida in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the developer cheated the homeowners and used the association dues for his own purposes. End of retirement!


CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in Tallahassee - finding out that power is only in numbers. Bergemann was a member of Governor Jeb Bush's HOA Task force in 2003/2004.


The organization has two websites to inform interested Florida homeowners and condo owners:

News Website:

Educational Website:

We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all service providers surely have a different interest! We are trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking in Florida !
