HEY HOA OWNERS……DO YOU GUYS FEEL LIKE YOU’RE THE WINNERS?
Eric Glazer, Esq.
Published August 28, 2023
If you live in an HOA and have been a
reader of this blog, you know that you have been reading about
the devastating times that thousands of condominiums and
millions of condominium owners are going through as the state
now requires mandatory inspections, mandatory repairs and
mandatory reserves in our condominiums. On the other hand, you
have not been reading the same about homeowner associations
So I have to ask those of you who
chose the HOA way of life over the condo way of life. Do you
feel like winners? Do you feel that you obviously made the
right choice by choosing to live in an HOA over a condo? After
all, HOA are not required under Florida law to have any of the
inspections, repairs and mandatory reserves that condos are now
required to have in Florida. So, as between the two, are
Florida HOA owners the winners?
I really can’t wait to read the
comments on this one. I get the feeling that not everyone
living in a Florida HOA is going to agree with that sentiment.
