Asked in Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: Can Florida Statute 163.04 this statue be sent to mediation in small claims court in Florida?

My HOA denied me the right to put a clothesline up which is against Florida Statute 163.04 I am a renter does this statue apply to me or just owners. Should I take them to small claims with the written letter from them denying me as proof ? What can i get in damages? is there risk of mediation? seems pretty straight forward to me.

A: Contact an attorney that has experience with HOA matters. You may get one that is willing to take the case on a contingency basis because of the attorney fee provision in Fla. Stat 163.04
