Florida Condo Bike Storage

Florida Condo Bicycle Storage

It is not uncommon for condominiums to require that bikes be stored condo units. Some condos make a bicycle rack available. Some condos allow bikes to be stored inside vehicle parking spaces.

The only way to understand what's allowed at a specific condo is to read the governing documents. The declaration and the rules and regulations documents may be good places to start looking.

The article "Condo Rules" by FLBIKELAW.org indicates that the Florida Statutes do not provide any bike storage rights to condo owners. Neither does anything in the Florida Department Of Business And Professional Regulation's "Condominium Unit-Owner Rights And Responsibilities" document show bike rights for condo owners.

If bike storage is allowed in the association declaration, then the declaration may also allow the association Board of Directors to pass rules that allow more options for bike storage.

If the declaration limits bike storage, it's possible to amend the declaration through a membership vote. The process for amending the declaration can be found in the association's governing documents and may also be regulated by the Florida Statutes.

Some Florida condo buyers wish they had understood the bike storage available at a Florida condominium property before they had made an offer to buy.

Prospective Florida condo buyers should, if they don't understand condo association bike storage rules, engage licensed and reputable attorneys and advisors to guide their buying decision.
