Do I Need a CAM License?

A Florida CAM License is required when managing an association of more than 10 units and/or has an annual budget in excess of $100,000. Types of properties that hire CAM License holders are mobile home parks, planned unit developments, homeowners associations, cooperatives, timeshares, condominiums, or other residential units which are authorized to impose a fee that may become a lien on the parcel.

Typical responsibilities of a Florida CAM Licensee are:

  • controlling or disbursing association funds;
  • determining how or when to prepare budgets or other financial documents for an association;
  • determining how or when to provide notice of meetings or to conduct association meetings;
  • maintaining and/or having authorization to spend association petty cash;
