Status of Community Association Bills and CALL to Action on HB 653, Relating to Community Associations (FL)

As of this writing, we are still waiting for the two main community association bills, HB 653 and HB 1237, to be sent to Governor Rick Scott. Once a bill is sent to him, he will have fifteen (15) days to act. He can either sign the bill into law, veto it, or allow it to become law without his signature.  The “Estoppel Certificate” bill, SB 398, was sent to Governor Scott on May 31, 2017, and he has until June 15, 2017 to act.  The “Condominium Termination” bill, SB 1520, was sent to Governor Scott on June 5, 2017, and he has until June 20, 2017 to act.  The “Marketable Record Title Bill”, HB 735/SB 1046, did not end up passing.     Read the article…………..
