Board Governance

At Murrell Law we understand the importance of preserving community value, the nuances of Board governance and how the two go hand in hand. With more than 10 years’ experience in representing community associations across the state, our firm is familiar with seemingly small association matters like interpreting governing documents to even more complex matters like elections and disputes between homeowners and board members.

Our firm understands Board procedure and we work closely with Board Members and their Management Team to ensure member notice requirements are met, elections are fair and proper and that official records are up to date and enforceable. Every Association is different and as our client, our team takes care to interpret your covenants, draft amendments and revise governing documents when necessary. Our firm is well equipped and experience to provide board members foundational knowledge to ensure that the Association is operating effectively and in compliance with Florida legislation.

WHAT DOCUMENTS GOVERN FLORIDA ASSOCIATIONS?

  • FL Statutes
  • FL Admin Code
  • The Declaration
  • Articles of Incorporation
  • By-Laws
  • Rules and Regulations or ARC Guidelines

There are many obligations required of a Member serving on an Association Board including being familiar with all of these documents. It is a big job and Murrell Law is prepared to guide your association every step of the way. As our client, the Board will receive an onboarding call with one of our Attorneys. This onboarding call will highlight the duties and responsibilities of each Board Member, conflicts of interest and how to interpret your governing documents along with any changes in Florida law that may affect the Association.

Board Governance is our most impactful area of practice. If your Association is in need of Board Member education or general counsel, please contact us today. We look forward to being of assistance to you.
