Condo Damage from Hurricance

Hurricane Irma swept the State of Florida from Key West to Jacksonville. With offices in both Boca Raton, Florida and Tallahassee, Florida, we felt the brunt of the storm in both parts of the State. For our clients, we know that the laws surrounding natural disasters and their aftermaths will become of increasing importance to Floridians. As a firm with many residential association clients, we have been fielding questions in the wake of the hurricane about repair responsibilities in multi-family dwellings. Note that the Condominium Act provides that any portion of the condominium property which must be insured by the association and which is damaged by an insurable event is to be reconstructed, repaired, or replaced as necessary by the association as a common expense. In contrast, in the absence of an insurable event, either the association or unit owners shall be responsible for reconstruction, repair, or replacement as determined by the maintenance provisions of the declaration or bylaws. Accordingly, when determining who is responsible for making what repairs, there is a subtle but very important legal distinction between ordinary maintenance (or lack thereof) and damage arising from casualty. Condominium associations and condominium unit owners are encouraged to obtain legal advice if they have any questions before making repair commitments. Feel free to call us should the need arise so we can help you discern what your obligations may be in connection with needed repairs.

Partner Larry Schner Featured in Sun Sentinel Discussing Residents’ Concerns Over New Boca Raton Chick-fil-A

A new location of Chick-fil-A at 2700 N. Federal Highway in Boca Raton has nearby residents concerned that the proposed drive-thru restaurant will cause traffic and safety problems along Federal Highway. The Chick-fil-A would replace the existing Best Western hotel, which would be demolished with three one-story buildings taking its place. Chick-fil-A would be located on the south end of the property and adjacent to the Harbor East residential community. Sachs Sax Caplan Partner Larry Schner, who represents the Harbor East residents, cited problems at other Chick-fil-A locations: “It’s a situation which they can’t enforce in Broward County. It’s a situation which they can’t enforce in Delray. It’s a situation that spills into the community and spills into Federal Highway. The building of a Chick-fil-A in this area is not responsible.” Despite the concerns, the planning and zoning board unanimously approved the project. The final decision, however, will rest with the City Council, which will vote on the matter later this year. Read the full article here.
