Assuming Florida Gov. Rick Scott doesn’t veto the bill, we may be seeing some changes to the law central to condominiums in the near future. That’s because the state House approved a bill that would bring a wide range of changes into law. The Senate gave its support last week. Notably, both houses support the bill unanimously — adding to the likelihood Scott will throw his support behind the measure as well. The bill adopted large portions of a Miami-Dade County grand jury outline that made recommendations on oversight and operational issues facing condominiums earlier this year.
The bill makes long-awaited changes to rules concerning recordkeeping and record requests, kickbacks, attorney representation, the provision of financial statements and voting procedures. But for some, most remarkable is that the proposed changes may subject condominium board members to criminal liability.
