is still a long way to go to achieve the final goal of creating
the protection homeowners and condo owners in Florida deserve. In the 2007 legislative session, we will be asking our
Florida legislators to enact the following changes to the laws
that govern properties in mandatory deed-restricted communities:
- Create Government Agency With Enforcement Power For
Ombudsman Office For Homeowners’ Associations
Ombudsman Office More Power To Enforce Demands
Fair Elections In Associations
Abusive Liens & Stop Foreclosures In Associations
Disclosure Provisions In FS 190 – Community Development
- Protect The Vested Rights of Florida’s Mandated Property Owners

to the table and to negotiate.
Currently, unwilling boards encouraged by their attorneys
just laugh at the Ombudsman, being told that the Ombudsman has
“no power” whatsoever. This
has to change! We
already have a toothless tiger – the Department of Business and
Professional Regulation. Not
because of lack of power, but because the DBPR executives refuse
to enforce the statutes and go after the violators.
