Condo Safety State Legislative Mid-Year Update
Pin It

Nearly 20 state legislatures have considered bills in response to the partial collapse of Champlain Towers South in Surfside, Florida last year.

Following the collapse, CAI (Community Associations Institute) convened three specialized task forces to explore changes to laws and best practices for the community association housing model that could help prevent a similar tragedy. 

Last week, the Florida legislature unanimously passed the Building Safety Act for condominium and cooperative associations. The legislation includes a framework largely based on CAI’s recommendations. Associations will have two years to comply with these requirements.
