Spencer Hennings, a Real Estate attorney at Shutts & Bowen LLP, was recently interviewed by CBS News Miami regarding condominium law.
Residents of Ramblewood East, a condominium community in Northwest Broward County, voiced concerns to CBS News Miami over their condo board’s practices. CBS visited our Fort Lauderdale office to ask Spencer about condominium owner’s rights under Florida law.
Spencer, Florida’s Condominium Ombudsman from 2020 to 2023, stated he heard a lot of complaints from owners who were worried about finances while he was in office. “Owners have the right to inspect an association's financial records with notice. The association has to provide all information on contracts and bids. The association has ten business days to provide access after a record request is made" he says.
