For the fourth year in a row, homeowner groups are proposing legislative reform to the Homeowners’ Association Act in Florida. Several bills have been filed, attempting to offer consumer protection against boards that abuse their power, and professional service providers – including management companies and HOA attorneys – that exploit homeowners and residents in Association-Governed residential communities.
Today I share with you a call for action in the state of Florida. The article includes email contact information for State Senator Alan Hays and State House Rep. Mike LaRosa.
It’s time to flood their mailboxes with your stories and personal experiences. Let them know, in no uncertain terms, that violation of your rights and threats to your personal financial and physical health are real and not isolated incidents.
Letter: Let Florida lawmakers know about homeowners association atrocities
Please email any and all descriptions of your abuse to State Sen. Alan Hays, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org. They are assembling data to present at the new session of the Florida Legislature, which begins in January. They hope to bring under state sanction out-of-control HOA boards of directors, as well as professionals including large, polyglot property management firms and highly paid lawyers whose fees could exceed $1,000 an hour.
