Q: I asked my golf course association for copies of all my records VIA FOIA and was told I had to have attorney ask ONLY
My golf club didn't follow Florida statute 720.305, suspension of 1 year without interviewing me and was done in 3 days.
A: It depends on if your golf club is paid for with your annual HOA assessments or if it is operated independently. You would need to have an experienced association lawyer review your HOA documents if you are unsure. If you are sure it is paid for with your annual assessments and there is no language excluding it from the HOA then you would need to hire an association lawyer to address this as there are no state agencies that regulate HOAs for violations of FS 720.305.
