The HOA Database was designed to aggregate important information about homeowners'
associations and condominium associations affecting Florida real estate that can be useful to a
wide variety of real estate professionals: title examiners; foreclosure attorneys; title insurance
underwriters; title companies, title attorneys and settlement agents; real estate investors; property
management companies; lien search companies; real estate agents/realtors®; homeowners' and
condominium associations; mortgage brokers; mortgage lenders; mortgage servicers; and others.
The objective of the HOA Database Project is to develop and maintain the most comprehensive
and accurate database of condominium associations and homeowners' associations for Florida
properties available anywhere.
The ultimate goal is to provide comprehensive information regarding every property in the State
of Florida. Needless to say, building out and maintaining such a comprehensive database is a
The HOA Database is legal-description oriented rather than property-address oriented at the
present time. What this means is that the database entries are indexed by legal description
(subdivision or condominium name or Plat Book/Page or Official Records Book/Page). So, to
access an HOA Database record, you need to refer to the property’s legal description.
The HOA Database is a password-protected site. So, to access the database, you will need to register
Once you log into the HOA Database to perform a search, you will need just basic property information:
- The county where the property is located;
- Whether it is a subdivision or a condominium; and
- Either the name of the subdivision/condominium, or the Plat Book and Page, or Official Records Book and Page where the subdivision or condominium is recorded.
The following samples will help you better understand how the HOA Database was designed and
the nature of the information that is provided:
– A short time after we started building the database, we realized that it was just as
important to indicate when a subdivision does not have an association as when it does. So, this is
an example where we indicate that there is no association affecting the subdivision.
– This is an example of a condominium with a condominium association, a neighborhood association, and a master association. As you can see, we have provided the contact information that we could locate as of the date of last update (as indicated in the "Last Updated" field). Additionally, we have included comments in the "Notes" field where helpful.
– This is an example of a subdivision where the name of the homeowners' association was changed. We include that information in the "Notes" field, along with information about amended and restated declarations of covenants. Additionally, this sample reflects that the subdivision has a country club. Where we can determine these, they are included.
– This is an example of a condominium where the condominium association eventually merged into the neighborhood association. As you can see, we include as much information in the "Notes" field as possible to assist our HOA Database users.
– In this example, we have a subdivision that has been further subdivided into smaller sections, with each section having its own homeowners' association, along with the master association for the entire subdivision. As you can see, we provide (whenever possible) the specific lots to which these sub-associations apply.
This HOA Database is a "project" because it is a work in progress. We still have a ways to go to fully build out the database and make it comprehensive. In that regard, we are seeking assistance from our database users to help us get the information we need to make the HOA Database comprehensive.
