Hello. My name is***** am Florida licenses attorney.I will be happy to answer your question.Please note that any information is provided for educational purposes only!
Unfortunately, in Florida, just like in any other state, State law will always trump / supersede any HOA bylaws which might be conflicting with the state law and that is likely why your local Florida attorney is unable to find any case law to the contrary.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
Thank you for your follow up.
Unfortunately, I am afraid, that you might be misreading the law and also the information you might have obtained from another source, which is not applicable under the facts, similar to the ones you have described in your post, because the 30 day notice is a statutory requirement under the law for a valid lien filing, and such requirement cannot be changed, modified or extended by HOA, since it contradicts with the Florida Statute.
I wish you the best of luck.
My answer stands the same, as to your original question.
