Division of Land Sales of the Department of Business

Regulation. Committee Substitute for House Bill 428

CChapter 73-175), effective August 1, 1973, authorized

the division to limit the amount and format of the

promotional materials that are submitted to a prospective

purchaser with the public offering statement. In addi-

tion, this act prescribed requirements that must be met

when purchasers are solicited by long distance telephone.

A 90-day refund privilege was prescribed under certain

circumstances, and agreements made in violation of the

/- section were made voidable by the purchaser within

certain limitations.

Regulation of the use of vacation certificates

was extended to include those involving a land sales

presentation (instead of only those requiring attendance

at a sales presentation) and was extended to distributors

and other persons, by House Bill 1391 (Chapter 73-54).

Actions intended to influence or secure the prepayment

or accelerated payment of contracts came under regulation

by the provisions of House Bill 1390 (Chapter 73-53).

Both of these acts carry an effective date of October 1,


by state authorities, and a specification of the dates

when the respective requirements will become effective.

The effective date of this act is July 1, 1973, except

for Section 1, dealing with certain unplatted, subdivided

lands, registered prior to July 1, 1973, which carries an

effective date of January 1, 1975, and Sections 2 and 3,

dealing with application for registration and notice of

filing, which become effective October 1, 1973.

Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 555 (Chapter

73-108) revised the requirements which must be met for

sales to be exempt from regulation under Chapter 478,

F. S., and House Bill 1392 (Chapter 73-178) clarified

Sthe applicability of the law for sales of lands outside

the state to persons within the state. Both of these

acts carry an effective date of October 1, 1973.

House Bill 1388 (Chapter 73-51) made it clear that

if there is no provision for physical access to the land,

a statement to that effect must be included in the appli-

cation for registration, along with the required statement

of existing provisions as to legal and physical access.

Effective date of this act is October 1, 1973.

House Bill 1389 (Chapter 73-52), effective

October 1, 1973, prohibited any material change in an

and Restaurants. House Bill 666 (Chapter 73-364) made

the liability of a public lodging establishment for guests'

valuables deposited for safekeeping contingent on proof

of fault or negligence and limited liability to $1,000 if

acknowledged on a receipt for the property. House Bill

1905 (Chapter 73-296) increased the membership of the

Advisory Council for Industry Education to a maximum of

15, removed the prohibition on payment of per diem and

expenses for association executive members, and removed

the limitation on employment of personnel. The effective

date of this act is October 1, 1973.

(Chapter 73-348) as amended by the Conference Committee.

This act imposed requirements for lands in this state

relating to platting, road and utility improvements as

specified by local authorities, requirements as to
