THE REAL PROPERTY, PROBATE AND TRUST LAW SECTION Condominium Law and Policy on Life Safety Task Force has been meeting weekly since July 6 with the goal of determining “if there are any amendments or changes to the existing law that would either prevent or minimize the likelihood of another tragedy like Surfside Champlain Towers South.” This photo was taken by the Israel Defense Forces, which sent a search and rescue team to help in the aftermath of the collapse, and released to public domain by the Israeli Defense Forces Spokesperson’s Unit.

A Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section task force formed in the wake of the Surfside condominium collapse expects to have a series of recommendations for Gov. Ron DeSantis and lawmakers by no later than October.

William Sklar, chair of the Condominium Law and Policy on Life Safety Task Force, says the panel has been meeting weekly since July 6, and despite a challenging timeline, intends to be thorough.
