It’s great that you want to help your friend out; however, there can be restrictions on who can attend HOA meetings in Florida. And not just Florida—any HOA registered as a nonprofit organization only allows residents to attend the meetings.
The general public doesn’t have any legal standing, but if you are going as your friend’s attorney, that is another matter, and you can attend.
If your friend is having severe enough issues that he needs to hire an attorney, he’ll probably be looking for a way to save some money in order to pay for it. Let him know to download the Jerry app!
