“The Section sends its thoughts and prayers to the individuals and families affected by the Surfside condominium building collapse”, said The Florida Bar Real Property, Probate, and Trust Law Section’s Chair, Bob Swaine. In response to the tragic events, the Section’s Condominium and Planned Development Committee has created a Condominium Law and Policy on Life Safety Task Force. The Task Force will serve as a resource to the Governor and Legislature as they review all aspects of Florida condominium law, development, association operations, and maintenance to determine and recommend if legislative and or regulatory changes should be enacted to minimize the likelihood of a similar tragedy. The Task Force will be chaired by Professor Bill Sklar, former chair of the Condominium and Planned Development Committee.
