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