Hollywood Mobile Estates Lmtd. v. Hollywood Estates Independent Tenant Assoc., Inc.

The Hollywood Estates Independent Tenant Assoc., Inc. is a Chapter 723 Mobile Home Association.  In a suit over certain rent payments between Hollywood Mobile and Hollywood Estates, an issue arose over whether the Court had jurisdiction over the individual members of the Hollywood Estates mobile home association such that it could require the members to pay rent into the registry of the Court.  The Court found that it did in fact have jurisdiction as Hollywood Estates had brought the suit as a class representative pursuant to Fla. R. Civ. Pro. 1.222.   The Association’s averment that it  instituted the suit  “in its name on behalf of all the mobile homeowners” was sufficient to establish class representation pursuant to rule 1.222.
