Condo Docs of other association. As we work on revising and
updating our own Condo Docs, we will find help in looking at the Docs of other
Florida condo association. Are there Condo Docs from other Florida associations
online and made available to the general public?
- First, as an essential guide to revising our own condo docs, we should read
carefully the 2009
Florida Statutes Chapter 718 which serves as a model of what condo docs
- Florida Club Condo
Association rules and regulations, including items on (a) acceptable trucks,
(2) installation of satellite dishes, (3) pool rules.
- Bylaws of Lenbrook
Homeowners Association of Pinellas County. I found especially interesting
Article XIV that said, "These bylaws may be amended, at a regular or
special meeting of the members, by a vote of two-thirds majority of a quorum

Rocks Beach. I would like to see this article incorporated into our own
ARTICLE XIV ELIMINATING PERSONAL LIABILITY: Officers and the Board of
Directors shall have no personal liability to the Homeowners
Association of Indian Rocks Beach, Inc. for damages for breach of fiduciary
duty as an Officer or Board member. This provision does not eliminate or limit
the liability of an Officer or Board member for acts or omissions, which involve
fraud, or a knowing violation of law. We do have a similar article in
our own docs, but the wording is not as clear. RG
and regulations of the Seascape Condominiums in Tarpon Springs.
- South Lake
II Condominium Declarations in West Palm Beach, Florida. I found especially
interesting in these docs the regulation regarding guests: "Family
members: Guests, who are immediate family members, may occupy
condominium units upon presentation to the Board of Directors of the Association
of written permission by the owner." In this case, unlike our own
condo docs, owners may allow brothers, sisters, children to occupy the owners'
condos even when the owners are absent.
- For a good example of how to set up amendments to be voted on by Association
members, I suggest you see the voting document distributed to its members
