Our HOA bylaws allow homeowners to rent their units but the bylaws say the HOA Council is to be the sole leasing agent. The owner is to meet with the council, listing their rent requirements, including amount of rent. The Council and the homeowner share in determining if a candidate meets the requirements for renting the unit. We are a small HOA and only have a couple of units that rent out. We have run into difficulties with these same homeowners not paying dues and other fees, and some renters not following the rules and regulations, even after notices. Are there other HOAs out there that are the leasing agent of rentals in their HOA? If so please share any information, advice or comments that might assist this Council in this matter.
Our Florida condo association documents clearly state we have a minimum two week rental period. A few owners have for quite some time now rented their unit for one week and even just on weekends! We are an upscale 140 unit seaside complex. These owners advertise as well on quite a few online rental sites - our resident managers as well as Board members - have seen and downloaded feedback on some of these rental sites where their renters gave recommendations such as "nice place, would go back etc. BUT they have also said they were told by the unit owner when they registered at our on site office with our managers to say they "were friends or relatives of the owners" if staying for a shorter time!
