What is an Estoppel Letter?
An estoppel letter is a legal document provided by the seller’s Homeowner’s or Condominium Owner’s Association, outlining the current owner’s financial standing, past due balances, current fees due and all future special assessments due. This letter will also have additional information regarding the association.
How do I register an account?
If you click on the “Register” button on the page header you will be directed to our registration pages. From there, you need to follow the three simple steps and your account will be registered with Estoppels.com
I received a request for payment via email. What is this?
The title agent working on your closing has requested that you pay for this necessary document for your closing up front. If you navigate to the link that was sent to your email, you can pay for this document by following the steps.
How do I request an Estoppel?
To place an order from the estoppels.com homepage start by adding an address and our system will automatically provide you with a list of availble addresses to choose from and select.
Next we will present you with a google map of your selected property to verify the information and select the product(s) for your order.
From there we will need your information as the requester along with credit card payment information. By default you will be charged the standard 10 business day fee. If you need to upgrade your order to a 3 busness day rush be sure to select that option before completeing your payment.
Finally you will need to enter the closing date and owner and buyer information. Once you click the “start my order ” button an email notifcation will be sent to the management company to notify then of your order request. You will also receive a payment confirmation email for your order.

Florida State allows a maximum of 10 days to process the Estoppel letter for a fee of $250. If this Estoppel is needed in a shorter period, there is an option to rush it for an additional $100 or $350 total. Please be advised, if the account is delinquent, the association has the right to charge an additional $150 for the Estoppel. The maximum amount for an estoppel is $500.00 (Rush+Delinquency fee). Please be advised our processing time is 24 hours before making the request.
How do I track my order?
You may navigate to the top of the page and select “Track Order”. From there you will be prompted to search by your property address or tracking number. Once that is placed, please follow the options to see the status of your Estoppel.
What are the convenience fees?
The convenience fee charged by Estoppels.com covers the cost of the processing credit and debit card payments. This does not represent the cost of the estoppel. Convenience fees are non-refundable fees that will be charged per transaction.
