A: All of those are official records, so, yes, they must allow you to inspect those records if they were included in your request. Generally, an association does not have to generate any reports they do not use in the normal course of business but they do have to keep the receipts and invoices for expenses.

A: Florida homeowners who are part of an HOA generally have the right to request and access certain financial records. To do so, they can submit a written request to the association or property manager.
