Condo Association Refuses Property Sales To Any Couples ‘Living In Sin’


VENICE, Fla. (CBS Tampa)- A local condominium association refuses to allow prospective residents to purchase a condo if they are not husband and wife. Any couples who are not yet married and are only parties in domestic parternships, no matter what their sexual orientation, will not be given permission to move into Casa Di Amici Condo, according to WTSP-TV.“I could not believe what I was reading. It basically says you have to be either a single person or a husband and wife to purchase a unit here,” realtor Julia Nowak, who rents one of the condos to her parents, told the station about a document she received from the association. Despite some taking offense to the policies, however, the restriction is reportedly not illegal based on Florida state laws.“To me, this is discriminatory,” Mary Greenwood, an attorney from the Brandon Law Center, told WTSP. “[But] “there’s nothing illegal or contrary to federal, state or local ordinances [in their policies].”

from what i hear, in the state of florida, you can't purchase property without the consent of your spouse either....not sure how true it is

i knew someone that was separated from her husband, they were not yet divorced....and she said that she couldn't buy a house they needed his consent

The spouse thing does actually make sense if Florida is a community-property state. If all assets (and debts) accumulated in a marriage are considered both the husband and wife property then I could understand why they would require permission from the other spouse, since property ownership comes with a lot of responsibilities and liabilities .
