Florida condo association question. Our Declarations say that we can apply damages done by an owner to their account. We can apply the amount of the damages to the account. Our declarations do not say specifically that we can lien for those charges. Do our Declarations have to say specifically that in order to collect a value on the account (not a fine) an amount the Association paid for damage an owner caused to the common elements? If not I am hoping that when they fall delinquent on the account that they can be treated as any other amount on the account such as the maintenance charge. Police reports support the damages and the owner was arrested.
