Florida legislators took action in 2017 by passing a bill which Governor Rick Scott signed into law and took effect on July 1, 2017.
“This is very important for Miami-Dade because it’s something that condo owners have been waiting for for nearly a decade,” said Hialeah Republican Sen. René Garca, who co-sponsored the bill with Miami Democrat José Javier Rodríguez.
The measure provides criminal penalties for condominium board actions under certain conditions. For example, a board member who willfully fails to comply with a valid requests for records from an association member would become a misdemeanor. Refusal to release association records to avoid detection or prosecution for another offense, will become a felony punishable by up to five (5) years in state prison.
