CITIZENS OF FLORIDA: UNITE
owners have to unite under the battle cry :
ASSOCIATIONS BACK TO THE OWNERS!
homes should be our homes again – and not part of a generic corporation
with little interest in working for our welfare. Specialized attorneys
have been running the show for more than 30 years – and the results are
obvious! Many useless law suits and inflated costs for management are
eating up our dues, instead of paying for the maintenance and
beautification of our communities.
is imperative for our welfare that we have statutes that clearly explain
what to do – and not to do! And a government agency with enforcement
power, so the powers to be know they will be held accountable for
violating the governing rules.
Citizens For Justice, Inc. has just celebrated its Fifth Anniversary! Our organization has established goals of ADVOCACY,
EDUCATION and LEGISLATIVE REFORM.
the 2004 Legislative Session we succeeded to enact various bills that were
definitely steps in the right direction:
Condo Ombudsman’s Office
Condo Advisory Council
Grandfathering Rental Rights In Condos
No More Liens And Foreclosures For Fines In HOAs
Easy Recall Procedures For HOAs
Certain Safeguards To Prevent Litigation Abuses
No More SLAPP Suits!
Greater Accountability Of Funds
to name some of the main achievements during the last legislative session.
There is still a long way to go to achieve the final goal of creating the
protection homeowners and condo owners in Florida deserve.
We will not rest until our Florida legislators produce the
following changes to the laws that govern Mandated Properties:
Disclosure, NOT Caveat Emptor, must be the "Buy Words" in
Florida – for all mandated properties, including Community Development
Districts. These reforms
are long overdue. Homeowners
and condo-unit owners all over Florida are suffering from inadequate
protection against abuses. Small
improvements have been made during the last session, but definitely not as
comprehensive as necessary!
Is The Goal !
Currently, new bills regarding these issues are being written and will soon be filed. We hope that homeowners and condo-owners from all over Florida will support our efforts. We have hired an effective lobbyist to be Our Voice In Tallahassee. Jerry Melvin, former Dean of the House, has contracted with CCFJ to be its lobbyist, beginning immediately and continuing through the 2005 Florida Legislative Session.
