The 2024 Legislative Session starts on January 9, 2024 and ends on March 9, 2024 – SINE DIE!


So far just a few community association bills (See: Priority Bills 2024) have been filed, the more interesting ones are still in bill-writing according to the sponsors of the bills. We will definitely see serious changes to community association and property insurance statutes. It looks like our legislators have realized that their latest changes are driving families out of their homes or into bankruptcy and foreclosure.


According to Senator Jennifer Bradley a community association bill is in the making, with financial relief, more serious enforcement and punishment for violators. Hopefully our legislators have realized that the arguments of the “industry” – claiming that there will be no volunteers for board members if punishment is in the books – are total nonsense. Are we not going shopping anymore because retail theft is a crime – minimum here in Florida?


Crime will be minimized if criminals are being punished, not just receiving a slap on the wrist, being told “not to do it again”.


Keep one thing in mind: It’s ELECTION YEAR – and legislators want to please the voters, not just the few folks who are profiting from unregulated community associations. The numbers are on our side – let’s use it! Contact your legislators and tell them what’s on your mind in regards to bills being enacted – with provisions that are owner-friendly and strict enforcement by a government agency and law enforcement!

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 !
