Overview

The Only Complete Practical Guide for the Operation of Florida Homeowners Associations Includes:

  • single-family subdivisions
  • townhouse and cluster developments
  • master community associations
A homeowners association is designed to preserve the common welfare and property values of the community. In a well operated community, it does. In a poorly run community, it does not. The proper operating procedures are not difficult, but they are often overlooked or misunderstood.

This book is a guide to help ensure that the association carries out its responsibilities fairly and effectively under current Florida laws.
