Bill Summary By
CCFJ Director for Legislative Affairs
Milena Macias, Esq.

SB 912

  1. Monetary obligation removed and replaced with assessment/delinquencies The proposed language states that a person is delinquent if payment is not made as of the due date identified in the declaration of condominium, bylaws, or articles of incorporation. If a due date is not specified, this provision states that the due date is the first day of the monthly or quarterly assessment period. This is the same language as proposed bill HB 623.

  2. Annual Budget to be provided at least 30 days in advance to owners. This is the same language as HB 623, requiring that an annual budget be proposed to unit owners and adopted by the board before a specified time so that the annual budget must be proposed to unit owners and adopted by the board of directors. This proposal makes sense unit owners should have the benefit of knowing what their assessments will be in advance, not just thrust upon them.

  3. Giving the DBPR authority to submit complaints against an Association. Another provision of this bill would be to amend s. 718.5014, F.S.; authorizing the Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares, and Mobile Homes to adopt rules regarding the submission of complaints against a condominium association. This is the same language as HB 623.

  4. Ombudsman location so that it is more convenient to owners. HB 689 also wants to amend Section 718.5014, Florida Statutes, to remove the principal place of the Ombudsman from Leon County to a place convenient to the offices of the division which will enable the ombudsman to expeditiously carry out the duties and functions of his or her office. This will allow the Ombudsman to be more flexible to the unit owners in various counties. This is the same language as HB 623.
