Well, the Florida legislature made it this year real easy for me. I only have to make a few little changes to the Florida statutes on our website to take care of the changes to community association law.


The Florida Legislature clearly failed this year  Ė again -- to protect the owners of property in community associations against abuses and scams Ė and allowed dictatorships in many associations to continue.


This year was all about the Florida Fire Prevention Code -- for the umpteen times. You can read the exact wording of the changes on our CCFJ website in my Op-Ed: Compliance with the Florida Fire Prevention Code: HB 7103EG


There is really not much more to say than: ITíS GETTING BORING!


Letís see if Governor Ron DeSantis will sign this bill. Remember: Governor Rick Scott Vetoed a similar bill pointing out that the lives of folks living in Hi-Rises are at stake!

Jan Bergemann 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 !
