owner clarification Notes
The Court Order resulting from recent litigation only defines and upholds the Condo Docs which simply clarified the rights of the Schecher Group as the commercial unit owner and Designated Rental Agent as defined in the Condo Docs.
Some basic facts you will find when you read the Casablanca Condominium Declarations and the Court Order that clarifies them:
1. Casablanca Rentals: Kinds of rentals at Casablanca-there are two types of rentals. (1) Transient rentals which are less than six months and (2) Non-transient rentals which are more than six months.
2. Transient Rentals: -there are two types of transient rentals. (1) rentals less than 30 days and (2) rentals 30 days or more but less than six months
3. Transient Rentals less than 30 days: The owner must have a contract with the Designated Rental Agent to rent nightly for less than 30 days. This is an unlimited number of rentals (max 365 per year)
4. Transient Rentals 30 days or more- The owner is not required to have a contract with the Designated Rental Agent. The owner must report and register all renters and the owner is limited to only 12 rentals per year.
5. Non-Transient Rentals - rentals of six months or more - Owners are required to submit a rental application to the Designated Rental Agent for approval prior to allowing the renter to occupy the building. The Designated Rental Agent may not unreasonably deny any application
6. Non-Transsioent Rental Fees- fees charged by the DRA as defined or authorized in the Casablanca Condominium Declarations and further upheld by court order. The SG charges a fee for the use of its property and this applies mostly to the transient renters. The current non-transient fees are $125 for six-month leases or rentals and $250 for annual leases or rentals
7. Background & Credit Check: The Board requested the DRA do the same background and credit check on renters as is required by new condo owners. Owners can submit their own tenant background & credit check to avoid these fees charged for the services associated with the checks performed by the DRA. No tenant is approved for occupancy void of an approved application and credit background check.
8. Casablanca Cond Docs outline all the above in Section 15 of the Casablanca Condominium Declarations as well as other sections. The owners can also read the court order for further clarification.
9. Owners who do not comply with the Casablanca Condo Docs and allow unauthorized tenants into the building will most likely experience the DRA contacting City of Miami Beach Code Compliance to report the owner and tenant. The owner will face the possibility of serious fines and the tenant may be evicted on the spot as seen on the local TV news as well as YouTube where the City of Miami Beach goes after illegal tenants. Rental Restrictions do exist in the Casablanca Condominium Declarations and owners may not rent as they wish as previously stated by certain Board Members. Read the Court Order for clarification if any exists.
10. Rental Enforcement: The Front Desk and DRA are not the rental police and owners can choose to ignore the Condo Docs and Court Order but CAUTION is needed because ignoring the condo docs and a court order is not a wise thing to do because there are generally consequences to both.
