A Homeowners Association(HOA) is designed to protect the common concerns and welfare of the entire community. The State of Florida has given the HOA a lot of power to enforce the rules and regulations of the community. A tenant is required to abide by all these requirements. Generally when a tenant violates these rules a notice from the HOA will be sent to the Landlord. The Landlord will then notify the tenant by using the Seven Day Notice with Right to Cure. The Tenant then has seven days in which to comply with the notice and start obeying the rules. Should the tenant not comply within the time set forth on the notice then the eviction process will be started.
In some cases the tenant may receive notice from the HOA that the owner is not paying the HOA dues. In this case the HOA does have the right to ask the tenant to send them the rent until the dues are brought current. In the event that this takes place notify FPME immediately at (352) 241-7000.
