Some building problems are not exposed until a building is several years old.  Stucco cracking, as an example, may not become evident until seven to nine years after a building is certified for occupancy.  If the stucco cracking is severe, it may be evidence of underlying structural problems such as lack of adequate blocking for the exterior walls.

Questions You Should Ask When You're Thinking about Buying a Home in a Community Association

Florida's housing market is growing again. Florida Realtors® reported that October 2014 sales of single-family homes rose 17.8% and sales of townhomes/condos rose 7.4% since last October. If you're ready to purchase a new home, it's very likely that you'll be looking at properties which are governed by an association (this includes homeowners associations, condominiums, cooperatives and other planned communities). Community Association Institute® ("CAI") and its sister organization, the Foundation for Community Association Research, estimates that there are 26.3 million homes within these communities. If you're considering purchasing a home in one of these communities, CAI recommends, that at a minimum, you should get answers to these questions before you buy a home in a community association:
