Hollywood, FL asked in Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: What are my rights as a co-owner to a property where my ex lives?

I am on the mortgage and deed for a house that my ex lives in. The divorce agreement states he will buy me out after 6 years. Recently they put up gates in the community and I went to the office and got a sticker so I wouldn't have to make the line through the visitor's entrance since I frequently go pick up and drop off our daughters due to our joint custody. He states I have no right to have that sticker because I'm not a resident.

A: That's between you and the HOA. It's none of your ex's business, other than as a member of the HOA.

A: Issuance of a sticker is up to the HOA and should be issued pursuant to their own rules and regulations. Your ex has no right to object to you getting a sticker since you are on the deed and mortgage.
