Condo and association law shareholder Donna DiMaggio Berger was interviewed by Channel 10 News for a story that aired on last night’s broadcast. The piece covered issues around the recently vetoed legislation in Florida that would have allowed older high-rise condominiums to opt out of a fire sprinkler installation requirement. Donna told Channel 10 that if the conclusion is ultimately reached that opting out of sprinklers is not an option, a task force should be set up to give condo owners and associations the time and resources to comply with the law.
Becker & Poliakoff successfully lobbied on behalf of community associations to pass the opt-out bill in 2017. We will again advocate for legislation that passes an opt-out provision for fire safety sprinkler systems next session. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or your association would like to join the effort.
