Although Florida law simply says that records
shall be made available to a parcel owner.. within 10 business days
after receipt by the board or its designee of a written request
what else you may want to know is that
The failure of an association to provide access to the records within
10 business days after receipt of a written request submitted by
certified mail, return receipt requested, creates a rebuttable
presumption that the association willfully failed to comply with this
The teeth in the record law is/are that
A member who is denied access to official records is entitled to the
actual damages or minimum damages for the association’s willful
failure to comply with this subsection.
Technically, email constitutes a written request, but there is no penalty for failing to comply with a written request, there is a penalty for failing to timely comply with a written request submitted by certified mail, return receipt requested.
