a message from the president Thank you all for your participation in the Central Florida Chapter of CAI! I am honored to be your President for 2016 and feel we have a very exciting year ahead. Participation in the Chapter is the key to getting the most out of your membership with CAI. At our January meeting we talked about “What CAI can do for you.” Not only did you fill the room, many of you volunteered to work on numerous committees. You have embraced the message and we have more volunteers than we have ever had before. New ideas are being infused into the Chapter and the fresh faces, along with our longstanding volunteers, is very refreshing. For some, participation on a committee due to time constraints may not be possible. We have 24 events scheduled in 2016 and invite you to participate in as many as you can. For 2016 we scheduled five (5) luncheons, four (4) breakfasts, three (3) socials, three (3) volunteer educational events, two (2) manager career breakfasts, and two (2) business partner roundtables plus our annual events like Meet the Managers, the Golf Tournament, and our Annual Meeting on December 1, 2016. CAI National is also in town this year at Rosen Shingle Creek and we are hosting the Chapter Party on May 5, 2016. Opportunities abound and I welcome you to join us at any of the events above. Last year we created a Welcome Committee, so if you are a first time attendee to any of our events, let Reini Marsh, our Executive Director know and she will make sure one of the committee members introduces you to others within our chapter. Our 2016 Tradeshow “CAI: You are NOT Alone” is a theme that we, your Board of Directors, are committed to. We had over 130 booths of businesses that understand community associations and had over 1,000 attendees (managers and volunteers) that were able to meet the business partners that were at our Tradeshow. “All of us is smarter than one of us” is one of my favorite sayings. If you are involved with a community association, you have every resource you need at your fingertips through the Central Florida Chapter of CAI. Our chapter is about helping you be the very best professional in the industry that you can be. Whether you are a manager, a volunteer or a business partner, we are here to assist you in growing professionally. I invite you to call, e-mail, or talk to me in person about how we can improve your educational and networking experience in the future. YOU are why we are here!

Matt Vice I look forward to seeing you soon!

Erik Whynot, Esq.

tenants and possession post foreclosure SUBMITTED BY D. JEFFERSON DAVIS, ESQ., JD LAW FIRM

L

enders, Condominium and Homeowners Associations, and Investors should be aware that Florida law requires the purchaser at foreclosure auction to provide current tenants with at least thirty days to vacate the property after a foreclosure sale. Purchasers should be familiar with their statutory rights and responsibilities prior to evicting tenants after foreclosure. The Florida state law fills the void left by the expiration of long standing Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act (“PTFA”). A federal law enacted in 2009, PTFA, provided limited protection for tenants residing in a home facing foreclosure. The law required “new” owners or purchasers to take foreclosed properties subject to existing leases, and provided tenants to a 90-day notice prior to eviction. The law was subsequently extended, but expired on December 31, 2014. In its place, the Florida legislature enacted Florida Statute §83.561, known as “Termination of Rental Agreement Upon Foreclosure,” which became effective on July 1, 2015. Similar to to the defunct PTFA, tenants must meet strict requirements in order to obtain the protections afforded. The tenant cannot be the mortgagor (usually the former owner) child, spouse, or parent of the mortgagor in the subject; the tenant’s rental 6

agreement must be the result of an arm’s length transaction; and the rental agreement must not allow for the tenant to pay rent that is substantially less than the fair market rent for the premises, unless the rent is reduced or subsidized due to a federal, state, or local subsidy. Florida Statute §83.561, differs from PTFA in that even if the purchaser does not intend to occupy the property, the purchaser may terminate the tenancy by serving a 30-day notice of termination, which must be in substantially the following form. Notice To Tenant Of Termination You are hereby notified that your rental agreement is terminated on the date of delivery of this notice, that your occupancy is terminated 30 days following the date of the delivery of this notice, and that I demand possession of the premises on (date). If you do not vacate the premises by that date, I will ask the court for an order allowing me to remove you and your belongings from the premises. You are obligated to pay rent during the 30-day period for any amount that might accrue during that period. Your rent must be delivered to (landlord’s name and address).


tenants and possession post foreclosure continued 30 days is that magic number. However, if the occupant fails to meet the requirements listed above (i.e. is the former owner, child spouse or parent of the former owner, has a lease not obtained at arms length or pays substantially less than market value), the 30-day notice of termination is not required and the immediate pursuit of a Writ of Possession may commence.

period. For Associations, copies of leases can be required, subject to statutory and governing document provisions. Additionally, for lenders who take possession at a foreclosure sale, the preemptive step of evaluating the loan documents for an assignment of rents clause and perfecting those rights can be a valuable tool to claim the right to collect rent during the 30-day notice period.

Still, there are real world considerations involved in this aggressive strategy. Ascertaining the identity of an occupant, the existence of and the terms of a lease, and whether they qualify as an exception can be an exhaustive process for purchasers and the risk of delay and additional costs due to a tenant proffering a vigorous defense, far outweighs the more prudent 30-day notice

Only the Writ of Possession will allow the purchaser to properly remove the occupant and take possession of the property. So, the quicker the 30-day Notice is delivered after the issuance of the Certificate of Title, the quicker possession can be effected. Regardless of the entity purchasing, proper evaluation of the property should be performed and the proper guidelines followed.

procedure. Nonetheless, there are carefully drafted notice letters that can incorporate these scenarios. Pursuant to the statute, the purchaser, “may apply to the court for a writ of possession based upon a sworn affidavit that the 30-day notice of termination was delivered to the tenant and the tenant failed to vacate the premises at the conclusion of the 30day period…the writ must be served on the tenant…, {and} shall be governed by s. 83.62.” F.S. 83.62 outlines the procedures for the restoration of possession of the premises to the landlord. It is important to note that some circuits have enacted procedures, administrative orders and even form templates governing the “new” Motion’s for Writ of Possession based upon the statutory sworn affidavit language. The statute offers further protection for the purchaser in that unless the purchaser assumes an existing rental agreement or enters a new one, the purchaser does not assume the obligations of a landlord, except as provided in F.S. 83.67, which provides the prohibited practices under the Florida Residential LandlordTenant act. If a purchaser can obtain a copy of the lease, it can be a valuable tool in collecting rent from the tenant during the 30-day Notice

diplomacy SUBMITTED BY BETSY BARBIEUX, CAM, FLORIDA CAM SCHOOL

for the community association

t

he advertisement for a community association manager included this qualification: “Must be able to enforce rules without making enemies.” Said another way: diplomatic.

Enforcing rules without making enemies is a tall order! Some managers have natural people skills that make this task easier for them. For other managers, this skill doesn’t come naturally but it can be learned! One manager who needed to learn this skill started her first manager’s report to the community listing eleven types of violations that owners and tenants were committing, some of them in bold underlined type! She threatened legal action in her first report! The tone of the report sounded like she was yelling and pointing her finger! An introduction of herself and her background would have made a better first impression. Her second report started out with a lecture about the fact that a gate is not a “security” gate and should not be referred to as such. That lecture was followed by a lengthy discussion of why and how the gate is broken, all the difficulties with repairing it and issuing new access control cards. The tone of her second report sounded like she was very frustrated! So far, that first impression is not improving for many residents. 12

CE N TRAL F L O R I D A T I M ES | 1 S T Q UARTER 2 0 1 6

Her third letter to residents was to threaten legal action if owners didn’t produce detailed plans to repair their mansard roofs within 30 days at the cost of $8,000-$9,000. The only problem with the threat is the restriction from the governing documents validating her demand was misquoted and incomplete! According to the governing documents, the association can’t bring legal action against an owner without a 2/3 vote of the entire membership. She was definitely yelling, frustrated, and pointing her finger! Making false threats is not very diplomatic. Needless to say, this newly hired manager is off to a rough start. While her enthusiasm and determination might be commendable, her method of delivery needs refining. This manager might have made a better first impression had she chosen diplomacy. We learned diplomacy in kindergarten. Remember, this book, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, by Robert Fulghum? It’s all about getting along with others - diplomacy. I wonder what his principles look like when applied to community association life!

SHARE EVERYTHING Our common areas and elements belong to all of us – we share everything that is outside our lot or air space. Be respectful to others.


PLAY FAIR Boards of directors should be sure to equitably enforce all restrictions and rules with all residents and tenants. Selective enforcement and allow continuing violations year after year is a breach of the board’s fiduciary duty.

limited staff; they depend on volunteers. Consider taking your turn on a committee or board of directors.

TAKE A NAP EVERY AFTERNOON There is nothing better than an afternoon nap at the pool. Take time to enjoy your amenities.

DON’T HIT PEOPLE Mind your manners at board and owners’ meetings. Don’t yell, cuss, point your finger, or do anything to embarrass your mother.

PUT THINGS BACK WHERE YOU FOUND THEM Since we share everything outside our lot or airspace, if you use it, put it back!

STICK TOGETHER When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together. We all live in the same community and should be on the same team with the same goal. We want what is best for the association. Just because your opinion of how or what that “best” would be is different than your neighbor’s doesn’t mean you are totally right and “they” are totally wrong. The solution could be a combination of both your opinions.

CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS In this association, roofs, fences, screens, windows, and doors are the responsibility of each owner. Keep them repaired.

DON’T TAKE THINGS THAT AREN’T YOURS Stealing is wrong. Just because there is an extra roll of toilet paper in the clubhouse restroom and just because you paid your monthly assessment, does not give you the right to take it.

SAY YOU’RE SORRY WHEN YOU HURT SOMEBODY If you damage the gate or equipment at the clubhouse, confess. A guilty conscience is very hard to live with and unnecessary. Besides, there are cameras.

WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE YOU EAT Use the wipes to get rid of the sweat after you use the treadmill or other work out equipment.

FLUSH Leave the clubhouse and bathrooms as clean and nice as your own.

BE AWARE OF WONDER Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that. Living in a community association is different! Be curious about this unique corporate structure of which you are a part. Read your governing documents and ask questions! Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we. Live with no regrets!

LOOK And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK. There is SO much in your world that is good – look for it! The Communities of Excellence Awards prove there is a lot that is right with our Florida community associations. Diplomacy is defined as skill and tact in dealing with other people. Be sure to use yours every day whether you are a manager or a resident or a board member.

WARM COOKIES AND COLD MILK ARE GOOD FOR YOU Be kind to your manager. Give her a break; she is doing what she was hired to do. Betsy Barbieux, CAM, CFCAM, is a Professional Development Coach
