Asked by Rubyrio, 33064 Fri Aug 24, 2012

The Condo Assoc. is telling me I have to fill out an application of approval and get H06 Insurance is that necessary?

Buying in any HOA you will need to play by their rules; HOA (Home Owner Association) have the right (and they exercise it) to screen all buyers and tenants (IF they allow renting...)

If you own it, then yes you have to do so. No big deal, because once you flip it you can get reimbursed for the portion of insurance prepaid.

Based on this and the other question you asked, I'm guessing you are a 1st time investor?

No I am not a first time buyer. I had bought several different properties in Palm Beach County and there seem to be a huge miss understanding about auction bought properties Most Associations insisted on the application process but after speaking to their attorneys they informed the association that I was basically willed into the Association and no approval process is needed. This Association is giving me a hard time.

Dear Rubyrio,

Usually, a buyer will read the condo documents and call the condo association for information before they purchase. You choose to go around this. Yes, is the answer to your question.

Yes, it is. You cannot be an owner of a condo unless you are approved by the board.

Not true. I purchased at auction. I automatically become approved. But from what I understand it depends on the association. I have purchased many in Palm Beach and all they needed was my information, not undergo a vigorous approval process. Several attorney have told me that is like I was willed into the property.
All they needed was my Certificate of Title.
