Associations Still Refusing Access? Here’s What To Do

As you know, your MIAMI Government Affairs and Legal teams have been working diligently with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) to ensure the passage of DBPR Emergency Order 20-06. As of June 1, 2020, the DBPR is no longer allowing condominium, cooperative, or homeowner associations to use their emergency powers for COVID-19 related issues.

Moreover, in our conversations with the DBPR, which are reflected in EO 20-06, Fla. Stat. Sec. 718.1265(g) only applies to physical damage to the building. If associations continue to block your access to show units, please take these steps:

  • STEP #1: Ask where the association has the authority to block your access when the owners of the units have invited you and have given you permission to be there. Confirm this in writing with the association.
  • STEP #2: File a complaint with the DBPR against the association(s). You can find the complaint form and instructions HERE.

Remember – we are ALWAYS here for you!
