Senate Passes Bill 398: "The Estoppel Bill"

Governor Scott signed The Estoppel Bill on June 14, 2017, effective July 1, 2017. The Bill helps title agents, closing agents, buyers and sellers, and realtors because it eliminates the ability of the associations to take an inordinate amount of time to provide an estoppel certificate prior to closing, and eliminates the ability of the association to use the estoppel certificate as a revenue generation tool by charging an unreasonably high price.
