OWNERS IN MANDATED PROPERTIES NOW HAVE
A VOICE IN TALLAHASSEE

 

JERRY MELVIN, FORMER DEAN OF THE HOUSE, CONTRACTS WITH CCFJ, Inc.

We owners desperately need a strong Voice In Tallahassee to support our requests for more consumer-friendly reforms. Despite all our personal efforts, it is very obvious that an experienced former legislator will help our cause immensely.

Jerry Melvin served as Executive for the Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Council in his area and was Legislative Assistant to Congressman Bob Sikes in Washington D.C. from 1956 to 1959

Jerry has a long history of service in the Tallahassee House of Representatives. He served from 1968 to1979 and from 1994 to 2002 when he was not permitted to continue to run for the House, because of Florida’s term-limit law.    

We feel that he is the right person to promote our interests and to help the many legislators who are willing to fight for our rights!

PLEASE HELP! From small amounts to big amounts, every contribution helps. Considering the cost of even a small lawsuit, a donation for this cause is quite a bargain.

IF YOU LIVE IN A CONDO, HOMEOWNERS' ASSOCIATION, COOPERATIVE, VACATION AND TIMESHARE OR MOBILE HOME PARK:
You May Have Been Tricked Into Giving Away
Many Of Your Constitutional Rights -- 
Including The Florida Homestead Exemption Act.
We Need Your Help Now!

Property owners living in developments with mandatory associations need legal protection against arbitrary, biased and sometimes illegal actions by their boards of directors and/or developers.  Current laws are inadequate to safeguard owners' rights.

 

Lack of enforcement of “consumer protection” laws is the main problem. Numerous horror stories illustrate abuses suffered by homeowners who have simply purchased their "dream home" and are then confronted by homeowners' associations with irrational demands, fines or foreclosure actions.  Suddenly their DREAM HOME turns into a NIGHTMARE.

 

Cyber Citizens For Justice, Inc. (CCFJ) is an Internet-based consumer rights organization working for reform of Homeowner Association (HOA) laws, Condominium Association laws and laws governing Community Development Districts (CDDs).  The vision of CCFJ is to eliminate abuses of these laws and to make the experience of home ownership more equitable and consumer friendly. 

 

Property owners in associations must unite to make our voices heard!  Although the Community Association Institute falsely claims to represent homeowners, it shows glaring "conflict of interest" as it profits from associations.  Imagine the IRS auditors claiming to represent the TAXPAYER? 

 

Florida statutes prove by their lack of enforcement that "consumer protection" does not exist.  Daily we read horror stories about the abuses suffered by citizens who have simply purchased their dream home, located in a nightmare association.  Bitter, disillusioned and broke our citizens have nowhere to turn.  Human beings must not be abused just because they want to own a home!

 

In the 2005 legislative session, more bills will be filed that will be to the advantage of owners. These are the bills we have to fight for!

 

Going to court to fight for our rights against the deep pockets is not an option for most of us.  Even though our government created these out-of-control associations, no government protection is available for us -- so far! That has to change. 

 

Experience during past sessions shows that necessary reforms cannot be enacted without the aid of an experienced lobbyist. This is where we need your help!  With your financial aid we will be able to represent our interests and to protect your rights.


FAIRNESS IS THE GOAL

Be creative: Ask your friends and neighbors, pass the hat at the next meeting or just pass out flyers, every little bit helps. We can't outspend the attorneys and the industry, but we can give them a good run for the money!
It will help your community!
