DICTATORS RUN THE SHOW!
Published July 27, 2018
good dictator makes his/her own rules. And that’s only too
common in Florida’s community associations.
2007 we had hoped to put a stop to all these “rulemakings” by
want-to-be dictators in HOAs. With our strong support the
FS 720.3035 – attempting to put a stop to “rulemaking”
that is not based on the original governing documents – the
how good is any law that totally lacks enforcement? Remember:
There is no regulatory agency here in Florida that enforces all
the laws passed by our esteemed legislators. Owners willing to
fight rules made up by dictators have to spend tens of thousands
of dollars to fight for their rights. Is it really worth
spending that kind of money trying to enforce laws passed by
legislators who obviously have no clue what they are dealing
reality they are listening to special interests whose only goal
it is to fleece the owners who were blue-eyed enough to move
into these communities.
Nonsense” is even promoted by the legislature when they
allow association boards to make “reasonable rules.”
WHAT A JOKE!
know that the word “reasonable” can be interpreted any
which way anybody wants it to read. What’s reasonable for one
person may be totally unreasonable in the eyes of another
person. That word is just another “Money-Maker” for
greedy attorneys who in my opinion allow dictatorial board
members to make up “reasonable rules” – rules these attorneys
know full well will create some juicy lawsuits.
long as “dictators” are allowed to make rules that are adverse
to initial contracts without being held liable for their actions
the whole system of “community associations” is nothing but a
sad joke that cost property owners millions and millions of
dollars each year!

's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group.
CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in
associations. He moved to
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
- 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
homeowners and condo owners:
News Website: http://www.ccfj.net/.

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
