Condo associations must purchase windstorm insurance
The standoff over whether to purchase windstorm insurance brewed for several years at Greenbriar Condominiums in Boca Raton Click here for restaurant inspection reports.
Board member Walker Crewson argued that Florida law required the association to have it. But his fellow directors declined to purchase it because the association had invested heavily in storm-proofing the property and had windstorm coverage for the clubhouse.
They said Greenbriar’s governing documents did not require windstorm insurance unless three-quarters of the 24 units voted in favor of it, and if Crewson was right, each owner would pay a lot more.
