Are you considering purchasing a home in a home or condo association? Before renting or buying a home in a covenant enhanced community, you should be fully aware of the homeowner's association and the rules governing the community.

Florida law allows for certain disclosures to made to home buyers when purchasing a property in a home or condo assocation. You should always request the governing documents of any association prior to purchasing your home. Many find themselves unable to locate the appropriate documents in time as the real estate market moves so fast. Here's a few of our best tips on how to locate these documents.

Check with a HOA management company.

If Realty Masters manages the property, you will find  pertinent documents on our website by selecting your association's page and finding the documents section. 

If Realty Masters does not manage the property and you know it is professionally managed, check with some of the other homeowner association management companies in town. 

All associations should be registered with the Florida Department of State Divisions of Corporations. You can search their website here. While you will not find the documents here, you may find the contact listed as the registered agent or on the annual report. This will also show if the HOA or COA is still active or has been dissolved and changed to inactive, as sometimes happens. 

Sometimes, a quick google search will reveal an association webpage, a Facebook page, or some other public forum like that on NextDoor to allow you to contact the members of the association or Board of Directors.

Often times, the county has a record of these governing documents that were recorded so you can always check with either Escambia County or Santa Rosa County if you are searching for a homeowner's associaton in the Pensacola area. 

It is utilimately the responsibility of the owner of the property to provide the buyer with the docs and other HOA info. If you are selling your house, check the folder the title company gave you when you bought your home to locate the documents.
