Property manager not covered by Fair Debt Act

Property manager not covered by Fair Debt Act

The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, the Federal appellate court with jurisdiction over Southeastern states including Florida, issued a ruling finding that property managers collecting debts incidental to their management services, are not considered debt collectors under Federal law.  In their ruling, the court found that the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act did not apply to the activities of the community association management firm.

Although this case involved a Georgia community, the same reasoning should apply in Florida.  For more information regarding collections or the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, please give us a call.  904.737.4600
