Please Join condo owners: Tuesday March 7, 2017 at 9 am in the Government Center 111 NW 1st Street Miami, FL 33128 to witness the passage of a resolution being introduced by Commissioner Bruno Barreiro in support of legislation to reform condo law.
For 13 years condo owners have waited for protection. We thank the press, our elected officials from South Florida, and the State Attorney's office for defending voters rights.
We demand criminal penalties for board members, management companies and any individuals/companies that collude to defraud condo owners. Condo owners want owner friendly laws in Tallahassee.
The corruption, dishonesty, and conflict of interest in condos is only comparable to what is seen in third world countries like Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua among others.
People are suffering, placed in financial hardship, and many have lost their homes do to condo fraud. From hundreds of conversations with condo owners one strategy management companies in collusion with Board members and the dishonest attorneys that represent them use to take their homes is to place false charges in their ledgers or not cash their checks, then place a lien on their properties, sell it or rent it, and ultimately leave them homeless.
Even worst they prey on the elderly and those that are the most vulnerable.
When an owner requests records some management companies have sent letters to all owners bad mouthing them and to add insult to injury some attorneys have sent cease and desist letters.
This possible intimidation tactics from owners that have a right to inspect records is an attack on our basic liberties. Many condo owners live in fear of retaliation from board members, management companies and attorneys.
The bill was introduced by Senators Rene Garcia and Jose Javier Rodriguez and State Representative Jose Felix Diaz.
Condo owners will not stop until this reform is passed in our legislature.
We have many more demonstrations lined up because the lobbyist who get paid to go to Tallahassee are already trying to shoot the legislation down as they have in the last 13 years. Whose voice will ring louder that of the lobbyist or the people that VOTE for our elected officials?
Read below blog from CALL LOBBY from Becker and Poliakoff I personally disagree with this opinion first because I think that people that abide by the law don't need to worry about criminal penalties.
Second, because I think that a lobby who may represent board members I don't believe can be impartial as the board members sign their paychecks and at times we have seen some attorneys go against those same owners that foot the bill. I know this is just an opinion but the main thing that condo owners are demanding is criminal penalties.
