For those not aware, there is a new Florida Statues, 718.111(11)(g), that requires condominium owners to have an insurance policy on their Florida condo.  If the Owner cannot demonstrate proof of coverage, the condo association has the right to purchase a policy on the Owner’s behalf and may collect the costs associated with the policy through an assessment to the Owner.  There are several flaws with this law and several bills have been introduced in the Florida legislature to correct the problem.  For further information on this topic see the following link: http://www.floridarealtors.org/NewsAndEvents/n2-012709.cfm
