And you can only get knowledge through EDUCATION. That’s why it is really important that Senate Bill SB 394 [Senator Ana Maria Rodriguez (R-Distr. 39)] and House Bill HB 547 [State Representative David Borrero (R-Distr. 105) will end up on the desk of Governor Ron DeSantis for his signature.


That would finally end the game of certain board members who in the past just signed a “stupid” form stating that they know it all.


Owners in community associations should be able to minimum rely on the fact that their board members, who have the power to destroy their personal finances, gain some sort of education before they start working as board members.


Board members shouldn’t be able to claim that they acted in good faith when they state that they acted in “good faith” when violating the Florida statutes – using the Business Judgment Rule as an excuse for any wrongdoing.


Please support this important piece of legislation by contacting your local legislators and asking them to support these bills!

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 !
