Condo Associations: How to Get the Records You Need

by Isaac Benmergui, Esq on October 20, 2011

You might be facing a violation of rules, or questioning the need for a new roof and the costs to be assessed. Whatever the reason, you’ll need a copy of the condominium association records. Make certain you get what you need:

* Ask the association what the rules are for having access to the records. Not all records may be available for inspection.

*  A request sent by certified mail is not required, but you may have to provide proof that the association received the request.

*  The condominium association must make the records available within 5 days of receiving your request. A Homeowner’s Association has 10 days to comply.

*  You can make copies, but there may be a fee of up to 50 cents per page if the association uses their own copying equipment. Section 718.111 (12)(c) and 720.303(5)(c) sets forth further rules on record photocopying.
