Client Alert: Florida Statute, 720.3045, Installation, Display and Storage of Items

Numerous homeowner associations have declarations, covenants, conditions, and restrictions for the storage items on their property, regardless of where the items are stored and whether such items are visible to third parties. Such storage items may include boats, trailers, sheds, construction equipment, and junk.

The Florida Legislature recently amended Florida Statute, Chapter 720, through House Bill 437 and added Florida Statute 720.3045, which states as follows:

Regardless of any covenants, restrictions, bylaws, rules, or requirements of an association, and unless prohibited by general law or local ordinance, an association may not restrict parcel owners or their tenants from installing, displaying, or storing any items on a parcel which are not visible from the parcel’s frontage or an adjacent parcel, including, but not limited to, artificial turf, boats, flags, and recreational vehicles.

The statute became effective on July 1, 2023.
