Florida. The Florida Bar’s Standing Committee on the Unlicensed Practice of Law issued an advisory opinion in May finding that certain practices of community association managers can only be conducted by lawyers. The committee declared that any activity that requires an interpretation of statute, legal analysis, or description of real property constitutes the unlicensed practice of law if conducted by someone who is not a lawyer. The committee’s opinion is currently pending a decision on its approval by the Florida Supreme Court. If the committee’s opinion is approved as written, many activities that are currently routinely performed by community association managers will have to performed by lawyers.
