In Florida, Community Associations are created and controlled by governing documents which are made up of the Declaration, Articles of Incorporations, Bylaws, and Rules and Regulations. Many of our clients always ask us which of these documents have a higher precedence over the other and when there are inconsistencies and problems that arise, what document controls?
As such, we have created the below pyramid which illustrates the hierarchy between governing documents in Florida Community Associations. Always remember that whenever any of the Community Association documents conflict with Florida Law, unless the law states otherwise, Florida Law always prevails.
