What are my rights to dispute an HOA decision in Florida?

In Florida, homeowners have the right to challenge HOA decisions that they believe are unfair or have been made in violation of the governing documents or state law. This can include disputing fines, assessments or decisions regarding property use.

What is the process for challenging an HOA decision?

To challenge an HOA decision, you typically begin by reviewing the association’s governing documents for dispute resolution procedures. It may involve internal appeals or mediation. If these steps do not resolve the issue, legal action may be necessary, where representation by a knowledgeable lawyer can be invaluable.

Not all disputes with an HOA require court involvement. Many issues can be resolved through direct negotiation or alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation. However, if these methods fail, litigation may be the next step to protect your rights.
