Association liens, whether under a condominium association or homeowner’s association, are a hybrid function of both (1) Florida statutes as well as (2) the association documents. Fla. Stat. § 718.116 and Fla. Stat. §720.3085 provide the statutory basis for lien rights.  The former is for a condo association while the latter is for a homeowner’s association. An association can lien expressly as provided for by statute if authorized by the underlying association documents.  Lacking either component, the lien and subsequent enforcement should fail.
