Thank you for your response Ronald.
I am afraid that I was not aware of what you were aware of when I answered you and also I am sorry but I cannot help that the law is legally valid and utterly useless, as you put it, because I can only tell you what the law is.
HB 77 amends a number of provisions which are intended to make it easier for landlords to evict tenants. For example, if the eviction is for noncompliance with the terms of the lease
, and such noncompliance requires the landlord to give the tenant an opportunity to cure the violation, the landlord may begin eviction proceedings if the violation re-occurs within 12 months, without having to give the tenant another warning and opportunity to cure. HB 77 also provides that if the landlord accepts partial payments, the landlord may still seek to terminate the rental agreement or bring a civil action
However, HB77 addresses a landlord and it does state if the association is a landlord, or encounters disputes where the landlord/tenant law may apply pursuant to the association’s governing documents, the association has the same right as any other landlord to evict.
The bill did not change the law that court process is still required to evict the tenant for non-compliance with the rules.
Landlord Tenant statute 83.56 was modified by the bill to state once a landlord gives a tenant a 7 day notice for non-compliance, the landlord does not have to wait for another violation within a year to proceed to evict the tenant. This is heralded as the benefit to condo associations to get tenants evicted more quickly, but it does not avoid the legal process I am afraid.
