For too many
years, the same DIVISION executives have wasted the money from the Condo Trust
Fund and left condo owners unprotected with no feasible ways to enforce
statutes and rules.
For too many
years, the same DIVISION executives have run the show.
Their lack of willingness to enforce the rules is part of the problem
we face in our communities. THIS HAS TO CHANGE!
IS PLAN B -- SINCE PLAN A
(ASKING NICELY!) OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T WORK
Meetings with the
Attorney General and Statewide Prosecutor to see if we could get a Statewide
Grand Jury to investigate how DBPR regulates condos and handles condo owners'
complaints. We may also want to include construction and other areas
regulated by DBPR.
Depending on how #1
goes, meetings with legislative leaders to see if we could get a full
investigation by a legislative committee or independent panel that would look
at specific complaints, but not simply perform an overview, such as the one
performed by OPPAGA.
Depending on what
happens with #1 and #2, a lawsuit to specifically challenge the lack of
investigation and other malfeasance by DBPR.

TOGETHER WE HAVE THE STRENGTH TO FORCE THEIR HAND!
by the dysfunctional DIVISION of Florida Land Sales, Condominiums and Mobile
Homes, many condo owners voice their complaints. I
get daily loads of e-mails, a majority complaining about the unwillingness of
the DIVISION to take care of business. Owners
see a lot more excuses why the DIVISION “can't do anything” -- or “has
no jurisdiction” – rather than receiving the help that is desperately
needed from this
And when the
DIVISION really can't avoid the issues entirely, it sends the board a
“warning letter” -- what a joke! Some
of these warning letters are being mailed to the wrong parties or even contain
false instructions. Gross incompetence!
get a good laugh when they receive one of those warning letters. They just
don't take those letters seriously any more!
Also, a bureau chief of a Bureau of Compliance is the brother of the senior partner of a large law firm that represents hundreds of condos in that same area! Everybody knows -- nobody cares!
CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATIONS MEMBER ROUND-UP assembled by Florida's
Condominium Ombudsman Danille Carroll made it clear again. The
majority of complaints are directed against the DIVISION, and the number of
complaints has risen dramatically in the last five years -- from 1,413
complaints filed in the year ending June 30, 2002 to 2,682 complaints filed
this year ending June 30, 2007. Although
the number of complaints has nearly doubled, I can assure you that the number
of condo units didn't double in five years!
years condo owners have packed town hall meetings all over the State of
face it: Financial
mismanagement, uncontrolled spending and even clear embezzlement run rampant
in our condos, but the people in charge of protecting the owners are asleep at
the wheel. If
the DBPR executives are unwilling to do the jobs they are being paid to do,
they need to be replaced! PERIOD!
We can no
longer afford a DIVISION that spends condo owners’ money, but plainly fails
to deliver. So if it takes a
lawsuit to prove our point -- SO BE IT!
WE CAN ACHIEVE OUR GOAL: AN
EFFICIENT DIVISION THAT WILL DO THE WORK THAT CONDO OWNERS PAY IT TO DO!
