Customer Question
My HOA has a...

My HOA has a board member that has a concern about a tree in her back yard from a conservation. She is demanding the HOA to pay. How do we determine who should pay for it?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

It was discussed at a board meeting and it was agreed to have the tree company come and look but did not determine who would pay

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

This was a result from the hurricane
