Are you looking to buy a condo in Florida? Condo buying in FL is different than NY. In Florida, every condominium complex I am familiar with does require Board approval of buyers. The criteria for approval, however, does vary from complex to complex. Credit scores, criminal background checks, references are some of the criteria used by Boards to review prospective buyers in their communities.

Your agent should be able to help you obtain a copy of the application form for any condo community you are considering, it will give you a good idea as to what information is required. You can also ask specific questions of the condo manager for the community.

So there is no one specific answer that applies to your question, it depends on the criteria used by each individual condo community.
