Covenant & Rules Enforcement
Goede, Adamczyk & DeBoest, PLLC’s full service condo & HOA law practice includes aggressive enforcement of your community’s rules. In all communities, there are a select few homeowners and tenants who believe that the rules do not apply to them. In order to preserve property values and to maintain the integrity of the community documents, we believe that violations must be corrected in a prompt and consistent manner.
Our office can consult your board on all the enforcement tools available under your condo/HOA documents and Florida law, including fines, suspension of use rights, evictions, pre-suit mediation, arbitration and litigation.
It is important to follow proper procedure in covenant enforcement. Florida law has specific notice requirements for fining and suspensions, and failure to follow the correct procedure can expose the board to liability. Further, recent changes in Florida law provide the board with more favorable enforcement rights. Please visit our Helpful Resources and Frequently Asked Questions pages for recent changes to Florida condo & HOA laws and helpful information on fining and suspensions. We encourage your board to consult with its legal counsel to ensure that its enforcement protocols are legally correct.
