As discussed in our May 2004 Alert, the Florida Legislature has adopted new rules governing Florida homebuilders and homeowners associations. The two bills adopted by the Legislature and signed by the Governor — Senate Bill 2984 and Senate Bill 1184 — have now been reconciled and codified in Florida Statutes under Chapter 720, and the inconsistent statutory section references have been corrected. Most notably, the required homeowners association disclosure has been codified at Section 720.401, Florida Statutes, and not 720.601, as provided in Senate Bill 1184. Florida homebuilders should update their contract materials to include the new disclosure with the correct statute section references.
