Prospective Renters:
 
In 2010 the Florida legislature through (SB 1196) changed the statutes to give Homeowners and Condo associations the power to evict a renter if their landlord isn't paying the condo or association fees. Many condo and homeowners, particularly investment owners, are in foreclosure and not paying association fees, but still collecting rent checks from their tenants. This law puts renters on the hook to pay the fees or face eviction.
Contact the Association before signing a lease through the CONTACT US form to request information if you are considering leasing a home in our neighborhood to determine if the HOA fees have been paid or to check if the home is in foreclosure before signing a lease.
 
We ask that prospective buyers and renters take a moment and read Southwest Property Management's DEED RESTRICTION NOTICE
