Ask the Governor to veto HB 1013(SB 1196)

The Governor’s office has received numerous calls and emails in opposition to HB 1013, the anti-implied warranty legislation.  We are asking that you continue to urge Governor Scott to veto HB 1013.  It is the only way to prevent this bill from becoming law.  The bill has not yet been sent to the Governor for consideration, but we expect it to be sent very soon.  Therefore, please contact Governor Scott as soon as possible so that your voice can be heard.

You can e-mail Governor Scott at and copy his Legislative Affairs Director, Jon Costello, at  You can copy and paste the following suggested text in your message to the Governor: 

Please veto HB 1013, which eliminates common law implied warranties in common areas of all communities in the state.  This legislation will result in greater costs for Florida’s homeowners, in the form of repairing shoddy construction, and ultimately lead to more foreclosures.  This legislation also leaves Florida home buyers with no protections for shared amenities and thereby places the risk on those least capable of protecting themselves.  Thank you for keeping Florida’s communities in mind when considering this very bad bill.  

You can also e-mail Governor Scott by logging onto the CALL website and using the “Legislator Connect” feature on the left side of your screen.
