Florida Condominium Hurricane Preparedness and Association Emergency Powers

The 2021 hurricane season is upon us once again. Hurricane forecasters have predicted that this year’s season will be “above average” with approximately 15-20 named storms, 8-10 hurricanes – 3 to 5 of which may be a Category-3 or higher. 

With that in mind, Florida Condominium Associations and unit owners need to have plans in place before hurricane season starts in case disaster strikes. With proper planning, damage to property and persons can be mitigated if a hurricane makes landfall near your condominium residence. It is important for the Association to be ready in the event a hurricane makes landfall near the condominium residences.

Residents and the Condominium Association Board Members also need to be aware that Florida Statutes, 718.1265 grants the Association emergency powers in the event a state of emergency is declared.

The emergency powers effect a wide range of issues including; shutting down utilities and other basic services, requiring residents to evacuate the condominium property, powers to contract for repairs and debris removal, powers to borrow money to fund emergency repairs, and powers regarding assessments for emergency repairs. Condominium owners, residents, and Association board members should consider all legal implications when creating a hurricane preparedness plan.

Should you have any questions regarding condominium association hurricane preparedness and the legal implications involved, Law Office of Ryan S. Shipp, PLLC and its team of West Palm Beach Florida Community Association Attorneys are here to help you with all of your Florida condominium association needs.
