Linda Stewart bill would delay HOA fines on deceased owner’s family (FL)

State Senator Linda Stewart has introduced legislation that would prohibit Home Owner’s Associations or HOA from charging late fines and fees immediately after the death of a homeowner. The bill aims to protect families from immediate financial scrutiny following the death of a loved one.  The law currently allows an HOA to implement liens immediately following the owner’s death.

The bill would prohibit fines and assessments for 6 months and late charges for one year following death of the parcel owner.   Read the article…………
