I swear I read a few weeks ago in the Florida state bylaws that you cannot run for the board if you are in the process of selling your mobile home?? Can someone please help me out with this?

Are they still an owner come election time? I say yes they can run, who knows when they will sell. Could be years.

I don't see why not, but I'm not up on the mobile home statute. There's no such thing as the "Florida state bylaws". There is Chapter 723, "Mobile Home Park Lot Tenancies", that probably applies to you. I took a quick look and saw that membership in a mobile park homeowners association is voluntary, but all owners are represented by the association's board whether they're members or not.

FS 723.075 says, "The association may not have a member or shareholder who is not a bona fide owner of a mobile home located in the park," and since board members have to be members, no one may be on the board who doesn't own a mobile home there.

Anyone selling their mobile home is eligible to be a member of the association and a board member until the home is sold. That's how I read it (not a lawyer).
