A: Yes, they can but whether or not it is applicable to a current owner has yet been addressed in a published opinion by appellate courts. In my opinion, they cannot be applied retroactively but it would take a judicial decision to convince some association attorneys. Condominium statutes prohibit retroactive application of rental restrictions, which is the basis for my opinion, but the Florida Legislature has not adopted the same statute in the Homeowners Association Act.
