Alex Dobrev is highlighted in this GrowthSpotter article about the Distressed Condominium Relief Act expiration and what this could mean for the real estate market. As the vice-chair of the Condominium & Planned Development Committee of The Florida Bar and real estate shareholder at the firm, Dobrev questions whether this should expire at all. “There has been a battle between different interest groups,” he said. “Those who oppose the law feel like somebody needs to be responsible and on the hook at all times … but I think the vast majority of people would absolutely agree that the DCRA has been a good thing that has really made it possible for these condo projects to survive.” To read the article in full and find out how you can benefit, click on this GrowthSpotter link.
