F.S. 718.706
718.706 Specific provisions pertaining to offering of units by a bulk assignee or bulk buyer.
(1) Before offering any units for sale or for lease for a term exceeding 5 years, a bulk assignee or a bulk buyer must file the following documents with the division and provide such documents to a prospective purchaser or tenant:
(a) An updated prospectus or offering circular, or a supplement to the prospectus or offering circular, filed by the original developer prepared in accordance with s. 718.504, which must include the form of contract for sale and for lease in compliance with s. 718.503(2);
(b) An updated Frequently Asked Questions and Answers sheet;
(c) The executed escrow agreement if required under s. 718.202; and
(d) The financial information required by s. 718.111(13). However, if a financial information report does not exist for the fiscal year before acquisition of title by the bulk assignee or bulk buyer, or accounting records cannot be obtained in good faith by the bulk assignee or the bulk buyer which would permit preparation of the required financial information report, the bulk assignee or bulk buyer is excused from the requirement of this paragraph. However, the bulk assignee or bulk buyer must include in the purchase contract the following statement in conspicuous type:

THE FINANCIAL INFORMATION REPORT REQUIRED UNDER S. 718.111(13) FOR THE IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING FISCAL YEAR OF THE ASSOCIATION IS NOT AVAILABLE OR CANNOT BE CREATED BY THE SELLER DUE TO THE INSUFFICIENT ACCOUNTING RECORDS OF THE ASSOCIATION.

(2) Before offering any units for sale or for lease for a term exceeding 5 years, a bulk assignee must file with the division and provide to a prospective purchaser a disclosure statement that includes, but is not limited to:
(a) A description of any rights of the developer which have been assigned to the bulk assignee or bulk buyer;
(b) The following statement in conspicuous type:

THE SELLER IS NOT OBLIGATED FOR ANY WARRANTIES OF THE DEVELOPER UNDER S. 718.203(1) OR S. 718.618, AS APPLICABLE, EXCEPT FOR DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, DEVELOPMENT, OR REPAIR WORK PERFORMED BY OR ON BEHALF OF SELLER; and

(c) If the condominium is a conversion subject to part VI, the following statement in conspicuous type:

THE SELLER HAS NO OBLIGATION TO FUND CONVERTER RESERVES OR TO PROVIDE CONVERTER WARRANTIES UNDER S. 718.618 ON ANY PORTION OF THE CONDOMINIUM PROPERTY EXCEPT AS MAY BE EXPRESSLY REQUIRED OF THE SELLER IN THE CONTRACT FOR PURCHASE AND SALE EXECUTED BY THE SELLER AND THE PREVIOUS DEVELOPER AND PERTAINING TO ANY DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, DEVELOPMENT, OR REPAIR WORK PERFORMED BY OR ON BEHALF OF THE SELLER.

(3) A bulk assignee, while it is in control of the board of administration of the association, may not authorize, on behalf of the association:
(a) The waiver of reserves or the reduction of funding of the reserves pursuant to s. 718.112(2)(f)2., unless approved by a majority of the voting interests not controlled by the developer, bulk assignee, and bulk buyer; or
(b) The use of reserve expenditures for other purposes pursuant to s. 718.112(2)(f)3., unless approved by a majority of the voting interests not controlled by the developer, bulk assignee, and bulk buyer.
(4) A bulk assignee or a bulk buyer must comply with all the requirements of s. 718.302 regarding any contracts entered into by the association during the period the bulk assignee or bulk buyer maintains control of the board of administration. Unit owners shall be afforded all the protections contained in s. 718.302 regarding agreements entered into by the association before unit owners other than the developer, bulk assignee, or bulk buyer elected a majority of the board of administration.
(5) A bulk buyer must comply with the requirements contained in the declaration regarding any transfer of a unit, including sales, leases, and subleases. A bulk buyer is not entitled to any exemptions afforded a developer or successor developer under this chapter regarding the transfer of a unit, including sales, leases, or subleases.
