Holiday preparations can be stressful enough without having the buzzkill of mandatory condominium reporting on your checklist, but the good news is that, although Florida condominiums and cooperatives have some homework to do before January 1, 2023, it’s short and sweet. It’s also the law.
Why? In response to the Surfside condo collapse in June 2021, the Florida legislature enacted extensive new legislation seeking to help fortify building safety.
Section 718.501(3), Florida Statutes requires that the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation’s Division of Florida Condominium, Timeshares and Mobile Homes compile a comprehensive database of buildings on condominium or cooperative property that are three (3) stories or higher in height, which is searchable by county, and published on the Division’s website.
All condominium and cooperative associations are required to provide the following information to the Division on or before January 1, 2023:
- Condo/Co-op Contact Name, Phone Number and Email Address
- Name of Condo/Co-op
- Project License # (To find license # please click here)
- The number of buildings on the condominium property that are three (3) stories or higher in height
- The total number of units in all such buildings
- The addresses of all such buildings
- The counties in which all such buildings are located
Compliance with this new reporting requirement is easy. Simply complete and submit the Building Reporting form online, or submit the information via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by USPS mail or even hand delivery to:
Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares and Mobile Homes
