Homeowners' associations that are required to register with the Division must be a Florida corporation responsible for the operation of a community or a mobile home subdivision in which: the voting membership is made up of parcel owners, and membership is a mandatory condition of parcel ownership, and in which the association is authorized to impose assessments that, if unpaid, may become a lien on the parcel.
The term "homeowners' association" does not include a community development district or other similar special taxing district created pursuant to statute.
