God does not discriminate against people because of their race, faith, age, gender or any other factor.

Because God does not discriminate in His love, I do not discriminate in my legal practice. I answer my own telephone at 321.237.2869 and welcome your call. Probate Attorney │+Personal Legal Care+

Condo Attorney │ Common Problems with Florida Condominiums │ 32937


Herbert L. Allen, Jr., P.A. dedicates this website to Florida Condominium Law. I have listed below some common problems with condominiums. If you have owned or resided in a condominium for any length of time, then you may have experienced some of these problems. I have only listed a few broad categories of issues. Condo Attorney │ Common Problems with Florida Condominiums │ 32937

Condominium Owners. Owner often face issues regarding the covenants, rules and regulations controlling the condominium. Sometimes common elements and limited common elements can cause disputes that may require legal action to resolve.

Condominium Rentals. Owners often have an interest in renting out their units for different time periods. Florida law controls different aspects of condominium rentals, and often taxes must be collected and paid. At times, the tenants may have demands, injuries, or cause problems with other occupants and owners.

Condominium Boards. The members of a condominium board have important fiduciary duties. Those duties may cause conflicts of interest at times. At other times, board members may not act properly. If condominium board members do not act lawfully, then Florida law provides remedies for dealing with such actions.

Condominium Financial Issues. The condominium finances often present serious challenges. Keeping sufficient funds on hand to meet short-term and long-term needs may pose serious issues. Plus, roofs must be repaired or replaced, walls painted, elevators serviced, and special assessments levied and collected. Contracting out repair work may also give rise to serious disputes both within the condominium association and with people hired to do the work.

Casualty Damage. Damages caused by hot water heaters leaking, dishwasher hoses busting, tubs overflowing and other water problems may constitute casualty damages.  While undertaking repairs, workers may cause incidental damage to units. Furthermore, mold may be a big problem.  In all these cases, complex issues may arise concerning who pays for what costs. Insurance claims also play a big part in resolving many disputes, because of certain mandatory obligations and deductibles for covered events.

Unpaid Assessments and Liens. If owners do not pay condominium assessments timely, then the association has lien rights to force compliance or sale of the unit. But many factors play into the decisions of all parties regarding the collection and payment of debts.

Discrimination and Disabilities. Florida and Federal laws form an intricate network of compliance issues for some condominium situations. Anything from accommodating special animals and providing access for everyone to public areas may pose serious challenges. In fact, renting units may also cause problems. At times, the Fair Housing Act can have large impacts on condominium practices. Condo Attorney │ Common Problems with Florida Condominiums │ 32937

I have seen many other problems with condominiums. Each case requires careful and attention and the condominium board must be careful to comply with applicable Florida and federal laws. Those challenges can be quite daunting at times. Time and patience, with attention to detail, can make a big difference.
