Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
They cannot do so unless they first have board approve it and a legal vote by the full membership to amend the rules..You have right to file suit or threaten to file suit if they do not abide by the rule making procedures under Florida law.
Generally, rules made by an Association in Florida are subject to a three (3) pronged test for enforceability, to wit:
This does not appear proper as you have presented in and the HOA may be sued by you and other members here for acting outside the HOA rules and by laws.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.
