Registration site live for HOAs and assoc. managers
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) launched the website where homeowners associations (HOA) and Community Association Managers (CAM) are required to register. Recently passed Florida legislation (Chapter 720, FS) required the website’s creation.
Community association managers, community association management firms or HOAs, in the absence of a CAM, must report association information before the deadline: Nov. 22, 2013.
“We’ve worked really hard to create a website that collects all of the data required by law to track the number of homeowners associations in the state,” says Secretary Ken Lawson. “It’s important that associations become aware of the new reporting requirement and meet the deadline.”
During the 2013 Legislative Session, HB 7119 made several changes to HOA governance, including the requirement for HOA associations to register with DBPR. In addition, the legislation gives DBPR authority to take administrative action against a community association manager’s license for violations of state laws relating to condominiums, cooperatives and homeowners’ associations committed during the course of performing contractual community management services.
