Susan Spurgeon, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Tampa office, was recently a speaker at the University of Miami School of Law’s 48th Institute on Condominium and Cluster Development.
The 48th Ralph E. Boyer Institute on Condominium and Cluster Development took place on September 28th and 29th, in Boca Raton, Florida. At the event, Susan spoke on the “Preservation of Easements and Covenants After AFP 103,” addressing concerns among counsel for condominium developers created by the recent decisions in AFP 103 Corp. v. Common Wealth Trust Services, LLC, 2023 WL 2146247, (Fla 3d DCA 2023) and King v. Roorda, 355 So. 3d 1001 (Fla. 2d DCA 2023), which decisions held that an attempt to create an easement over one’s own property is void under Florida Law.
The 48th Institute covered the latest on key topics for attorneys and professionals involved in condominiums, homeowners and community association law and development, including the latest Surfside legislation. Named for founding Professor Ralph E. Boyer, the University of Miami’s Condominium and Cluster Housing Institute was established in 1976 to provide a review of the current state of the law and identify issues facing the industry, government, and consumers.
