The Jade Winds Association Inc, a condo minium in Miami-Dade County has filed a very interesting lawsuit in Bankruptcy Court against First Service Residential, the management company formerly known as the Continental Group.
As a homeowner or condo owner I hope you are aware that this company is actively lobbying in Tallahassee against owner-friendly community association legislation since many years.
In the lawsuit the condo association blames First Residential Service — and especially the assigned manager, for all kinds of wrongdoings leading to the bankruptcy filing of the corporation. The list of alleged wrongdoings is very long, starting with bills not being paid in a timely manner leading to late charges to kickbacks for throwing the elections. The actual lawsuit (please click on link below) provides very interesting reading and — in my opinion — it will be very difficult for First Residential Services to get out of this lawsuit unharmed if Jade Winds can prove even only part of the allegations levied in the filed lawsuit.
