Laws & Statutes

The legal skeleton of a Homeowner Association is a set of governing documents established to provide participating residents with objectives and direction as they aspire to promulgate a safe and prosperous neighborhood. This is the case whether the neighborhood is comprised of several city blocks or a single multi-residence domicile. The condominiums and cooperatives that embody Galt Ocean Mile all enjoy the protection afforded by these guidelines. Our “Condo Docs” and “By-Laws” preserve the individual homeowner’s rights while protecting the “neighborhood” from the tyranny of certain individuals who feel it appropriate to “overstep their bounds”. However, the enforceability of these Declarations of Condominium, By-Laws, and Meeting Minutes added to regularly by well intentioned Directorial Boards, are subject to the laws and statutes of superior jurisdictions. These include federal law as well as the statutes of the State of Florida, Broward County, and the City of Fort Lauderdale. This section seeks to provide those interested in exploring these superior jurisdictional guidelines with access to those laws and codes that have direct impact on our homes. The links are reasonably self explanatory.
