Q. I’m the treasurer of our condominium and asked to look at a vendor’s file during office hours. The property manager told me that I cannot see these records. Can this be correct?

A. Florida condominium law does not allow you access and inspect the association’s “personnel records”, which include but are not limited to, disciplinary, payroll, health, and insurance records. However, you are entitled to review any employment agreements. Further, the term “personnel records” does NOT include written employment agreements with an association employee or management company, or budgetary or financial records that indicate the compensation paid to an association employee. In other words, you are entitled to know where your money is going and how much an association employee or vendor is paid.
