Florida – Can community association regulate drone activity?

Cuius est solum, eius est usque ad coelum et ad inferos (For whoever owns the soil, it is theirs up to Heaven and down to hell.)

New technologies continue to chip away at common law principles of real property ownership and present questions about the scope of community association authority.

Community associations facing issues related to the use of drones may have authority to enact rules and regulations related to the use of drones (through the conduct of owners), but that scope of authority must be strictly scrutinized.

As provided in this article, amending an association’s governing documents may be the best approach to address drone usage, if such usage creates issues within a community.
