✅Florida Signals HOA Maintenance Issues for California, All of the HOA World

“In this week's tip, we discuss the maintenance and inspection requirements recommended in a new report issued by a grand jury seeking to prevent a repeat of the collapse of the Champlain Towers South condo in Surfside, Fla.” [ SOURCE ] Many of the grand jury's suggestions are specific to Florida law , but some could be adopted in other states. Among those are: * Requiring board members to certify that they've had regular and routine maintenance of all components affecting the structural integrity of the building within the past 12 months * Creating a new specific duty of inspection to be imposed on board members, including that inspections and repairs be performed every 10 years Could those recommendations be adopted in Florida, and do they even make sense for other condo boards nationwide ?

Homes in wildfire-prone areas and older residences in need of updates might be considered high-risk properties. If you have a history of frequent claims or a poor credit score, you may also be considered high risk by insurance companies. The topic of property fire insurance came with recent urgency because our HOA community at the base of the sprawling Cleveland National Forest in Temescal Valley received a fire insurance cancelation notice of nonrenewal beginning in mid-November.
