The Presumed Collapse of the Indian River County, FL South Beach Property Owners Association?

The Moorings, Vero Beach, Florida

WE JUST RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM A MEMBER OF THE SOUTH BEACH PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION (SBPOA), IN INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, FL THAT “THREE DISSIDENT DIRECTORS OF SBPOA, CLAIMING TO REPRESENT ‘80%’ OF THE CONSTITUENCY OF THE ASSOCIATION, THREATEN TO WITHDRAW THEIR ASSOCIATIONS FROM THE SBPOA UNLESS THEY ARE IN CONTROL.  THIS WOULD PRESUMABLY PRECIPITATE THE COLLAPSE OF OUR ORGANIZATION.” 

This member offered the following evidence to the contrary:

Further, the member wrote: “Similarly, these three Members contribute about 25% of our annual budget.

We would certainly regret the loss of the Moorings Property Owners Association, the Sandpointe Property Owners Association, and the Seagrove Property Owners Association from our organization at the instigation of their self-appointed representatives on the SBPOA Board.

Has anyone actually considered the opinion of the elected representatives–the officers and directors of these associations–in making this decision?

It is also important to note that the Moorings of Vero Property Owners Association, Inc. (MPOA) is actually just an umbrella association for several property and condominium associations.  The MPOA has no authority of its own to enforce covenants and deed restrictions on individual property owners.  The real authority rests with the  individual associations, as shown below with their corporate identity:

Corp_ID POA Corporation
N12849 HARBOR INN AT THE MOORINGS ASSOCIATION, INC.
742293 HARBOUR SIDE CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION OF VERO BEACH, INC.
762936 HARBOUR SIDE YACHT CLUB, INC.
738518 NORTH PASSAGE ASSOCIATION, INC.
N07016 NOR’WEST PASSAGE CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION, INC.
745164 PORPOISE BAY VILLAS CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION, INC.
733304 SABAL REEF ASSOCIATION, INC.
N99000000406 SEA MIST COURT OWNERS ASSOCIATION, INC
729728 SOUTH PASSAGE ASSOCIATION, INC.
765944 SOUTHWINDS AT THE MOORINGS ASSOCIATION, INC.
747816 SPINNAKER POINT ASSOCIATION, INC.
N33270 SPYGLASS HARBOUR ASSOCIATION, INC.
752298 THE ANCHOR PROPERTY OWNERS’ ASSOCIATION, INC.
718783 THE BILLOWS ASSOCIATION, INC.
752121 THE GALLEONS’ ASSOCIATION, INC.
N08090 THE POINTES AT THE MOORINGS ASSOCIATION, INC.
755905 THE RIVER MEWS ASSOCIATION, INC.
741781 WEST PASSAGE ASSOCIATION, INC.
742137 WINDWARD CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION OF VERO BEACH, INC.

(Moorings Units 1, 2, 3, and 4 are single-family residential neighborhoods and do not have restrictive covenants administered by a property owners’ association.)

One must similarly ask whether any of the elected officials of these associations have been consulted in any way as to whether they should continue as members of the SBPOA.”

Stay tuned…

It’s fun to have breaking news.
