Hi John,

99 percent of condos in Florida do not have HOAs they have Condominimum Associations which are different than HOAs, the documents governing the assn. are quite large compared to HOAs. Other than that Tom's answer below would also be my recommendation.

Good luck!

I agree with most of what everyone below said however, it is important to keep in mind structural integrity in regards to renovations. You have to understand that similarly to remodeling in a home, there are load bearing walls and other structures that need to be considered. This, among other reasons is why consulting building codes and the like is extremely important.

Obviously, any work that you do to the unit must be within in the guidelines set forth in your condominium documents. For work inside the unit you will need to speak with the local permitting authorities to see what work can, and cannot, be done without a permit.

I hope this information is helpful but if I can be of further assistance in any way, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.

Always at Your Service,

You would need to touch base with the city regarding inspections of contracted work that is done. It would also be a great idea to call the local homebuilders and or remodelers association in your area. They are going to be able to tell you about more precise things that may need to be done outside of your HOA.

I would suggest to contact the building and zoning department for the rules.
