Condo associations have to keep bids for any materials, equipment, and services within the official records.
Renters must be allowed to inspect and/ or copy the association’s bylaws and rules.
Condo associations have to give an annual reporting of the financial institutions it holds accounts into the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DPBR). Owners have to be allowed access to this report from the DPBR.
If a unit owner does not receive a copy of recent financial statements after making a request to the association, the owner can give notice the Division of Condominiums, Timeshares, and Mobile Homes of the DPBR. Failure to comply within 5 business days will result in stricter regulation of financial statements for a minimum of 3 years.
Directors or officers of a condo charged with specific crimes in relation to the condominium cannot access any association records without a court order, so long as the charges are pending.
Any condo association with 150 or more units MUST post its official records on its website. These records cannot be accessible to the general public.
