    That would depend on the individual HOA.

    Most of the time the HOA just wants to have the information on the tenant.

    Sometimes the HOA just doesn't want more rentals. Expect it to be an uphill fight to get this approved, though with a long term tenant who appears ok on paper, maybe it'll be ok. The HOA may also say they don't want more than some percent of the places to be rentals and they are at the % and there could even be a waiting list of other landlords to be the next one allowed to rent if a current rental goes back to being an owner occupant.

    It depends on the building.

    There are no statewide HOA requirements.  In fact, two different HOAs side by side could have different requirements.  

    There could be age or pet restrictions.  Could be an interview required.  You need to ask the LL for the requirements...nobody on here knows what they are for this property.

    You apparently don't know what an HOA is. Florida does have a Homeowners Association Act but that's not what the landlord is referring to. What the HOA you've applied to move in to requires is completely up to them. Without knowing which townhome community it is the only people that can accurately answer that question is that specific HOA them selves. You'll have to ask them.

    There is no such thing as "Florida HOA".

    Each Homeowner's Association is an independent, unique association with it's own rules and regulations.

    Many HOAs only allow a certain percentage of the units to be rentals.

    Every HOA has its own rules.  Maybe there are age or pet restrictions . . . certainly the number of residents and use of property (such as non-commercial).  At the very least they will want to assure that a prospective tenant or buyer has been acquainted with the rules and agrees to abide by them.  In our community, we have a committee of 3 owners who interview the prospective neighbor, we do credit and criminal background checks.
