Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Under FL law, both under 718.303 and under(NNN) NNN-NNNN there is no provision under the 2012 (most current) laws as you state for enforcement to commence within one year after filed to be valid. Here is the link to the most current version of FS 718.303
and you can see there is no (4)(b). Here is the most current version of FS(NNN) NNN-NNNN/a>. There is no one year to enforce the FL HOA lien, which is now called a super lien under FL law as it takes precedence over all other liens.
If you have proof you paid the liens, accord and satisfaction is the best affirmative defense
. If you are claiming accord and satisfaction because they did not enforce the lien in 1 year, I am afraid that would not fly. Under FL law, breach of contract, which is what the failure to pay dues would be, has a statute of limitations
of 5 years from date payment was due. Failure to pay HOA dues would be considered breach of contract in FL, so that is what the suit would be against the individual unit owner as well
