Florida condo guidelines leave an insurance gap

As result of attempting to sell my unit in Doral, FL, I've found out that there is a gap between the policy of most of the lenders to ask for the ordinance and law enforcement insurance (OLE) and the Florida condo guidelines that demand quite light insurance requirements. According to Florida laws rebuilding must be done according to the current code. Obviously at this moment there is inconsistency between the rebuilt statutes and FL condo guidelines 718. Since ordinance and law enforcement insurance seems to be quite costly, most of HOA don't have it, and the HOA Boards justify their decisions hiding behind FL condo guidelines, leaving all condo owners fully exposed to the catastrophic risk of not being able to rebuilt in case of extensive damage caused by risks as fire, hurricane, etc.  Are there any HOA's or owners looking into this risk exposure?

Can condo association dictate homeowner insurance requirements?

Our condominium had a catastrophic loss to our insurance company for an act of nature. We were told that upon our renewal that the Master Policy deductible will increase from $5,000 to $25,000. Currently, the HO-6 policy for the homeowners only covers a $5,00 deductible payout to the association to cover the Master Policy deductible, which will soon be insufficient. Can the Board require that all homeowners now carry a min $25,000 payout on their HO-6 to cover the Master Policy deductible? Otherwise the condo would have to pretty much self-insure for the remainder, and we couldn't afford to do and most people don't have an extra $25,000 in cash lying around. Has anyone else had this issue or something similar? What options or suggestions can anyone provide?
