Association board members hold the keys to ensuring the vitality and harmony of homeowners’ communities. If you’re an association board member in Florida, it is essential to understand the implications of HB 919 as it relates to your roles and responsibilities under Florida’s Homeowners’ Associations (HOA) Laws. The bill was signed into law on June 12, 2023 and becomes effective October 1, 2023.
Understanding Florida HOAs and the Impact of HB 919
In Florida, HOAs are responsible for keeping our neighborhoods looking good and working well. Homeowners in these communities automatically become part of the HOA family when they buy a property. The HOA can charge homeowners fees, which might lead to a lien on their property if these fees aren’t paid. HOAs also have the power to give fines or take away certain rights if homeowners break the community rules.
