SCOPE

SCOPE RALPH E. BOYER INSTITUTE ON

CONDOMINIUM AND CLUSTER DEVELOPMENTS

The Institute is designed to update condominium and

planned development law generally and explore in detail

particular topics of current interest. The entire morning

will explore judicial, legislative and administrative recent

developments followed by a discussion of current issues

facing community associations and lenders relative to

association finances. This year's Luncheon Roundtable will

present an overview of the Florida residential market by

leading economists.

The afternoon session will begin with a panel discussion of

the condominium assessment safe harbor debate from

both lender and association perspectives. The afternoon

session will continue with an arbitration update. This will be

followed by a panel discussion of new trends in condo and

HOA construction litigation including defects and turnover

inspections. The Thursday afternoon session will conclude

with a practical ethics and professional responsibility panel

discussing drafting mistakes of community association

practitioners.

The Friday morning session will begin with a panel discussion

of current issues of condominium reversions involving

terminations and new statutory requirements. This will be

followed by a panel presentation of intellectual property

issues facing community association practitioners. The

morning session will conclude with our annual “Meeting

with the Division”, consisting of an informal workshop where

several significant issues confronting both developers and

community association practitioners will be discussed in an

open forum.

The Friday afternoon session will begin with a Lunch

Meeting of the Florida Bar Condominium and Planned

Development Committee, including a legislative outlook

for 2016. Immediately following Friday’s luncheon, a

panel discussion of modernizing community association

documents will be presented. The Institute will conclude

with a panel discussion of mandatory membership clubs

including issues of conversion and merger of clubs and

HOA’s from a practical issue perspective.
