In this week's episode, we interview Bryan Levine. Bryan is a partner at Knox Levine, a firm that focuses on representing condominium and homeowner associations.
Recently, Florida passed a law known as the "Estoppel Law," Senate Bill 398. This new law governs certain aspects of what an association can or cannot do when issuing an estoppel letters - those letters that associations issue to let the homeowners know what they owe, what assessments are due, and other financial aspects of the property.
Some things included in the law:
1. The time-frame within which the Estoppel Letter must be issued;
2. A cap on the amount the association can charge for the letter;
3. Describes what information must be included in the Estoppel Letter;
4. The Estoppel Letters must be valid for 30 - 35 days.
If you get a letter from an association and have questions, please send me an email at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com.
