       The Committee on Judiciary (Albritton) recommended the
    1         Senate Amendment (with title amendment)
    3         Between lines 108 and 109
    4  insert:
    5         Section 3. Section 715.015, Florida Statutes, is created to
    6  read:
    7         715.015Property owner bill of rights.—Each property
    8  appraiser office shall provide on its website a property owner
    9  bill of rights. The purpose of the bill of rights is to identify
   10  certain existing rights afforded to property owners. The bill of
   11  rights is not a comprehensive listing. The property owner bill
   12  of rights does not create a civil cause of action. The property
   13  owner bill of rights must state:
   15                           PROPERTY OWNER                          
   16                           BILL OF RIGHTS                          
   17         This Bill of Rights does not represent all of
   18         your rights under Florida law regarding your property
   19         and should not be viewed as a comprehensive guide to
   20         property rights. This document does not create a civil
   21         cause of action and neither expands nor limits any
   22         rights or remedies provided under any other law. This
   23         document is not intended to replace the need to seek
   24         legal advice in matters relating to property law. Laws
   25         relating to your rights are found in the Florida
   26         Constitution, the Florida Statutes, local ordinances,
   27         and court decisions.
   29         As a property owner, you have the following
   30         rights and protections:
   31         1. The right to acquire, possess, and protect
   32         property.
   33         2. The right to use and enjoyment of property.
   34         3. The right to exclude others from property.
   35         4. The right to dispose of property.
   36         5. The right to due process.
   37         6. The right to just compensation for property
   38         taken for a public purpose.
   39         7. The right to relief, or payment of
   40         compensation, when a new law, rule, regulation, or
   41         ordinance of the state or a political entity in the
   42         state unfairly affects real property.
