Over 100 HOA owners received information from expert panelists about HOA issues and also voiced their concerns last night at a town hall meeting hosted by five Democratic state legislators. The legislators assembled a panel of government officials, HOA law experts, mediators and owner advocates to discuss current HOA legislation, initiatives to reform and improve HOA law, and the prospects for the regulation or licensing of association management companies. Panelists made presentations and answered questions from the audience. The strongest sentiments were around the possibility for requiring mediation of some association disputes, enforcement mechanisms when associations don’t follow their own procedures or statutes and the potential regulation of association management. We will continue to monitor and keep you advised of possible legislation affecting our industry as legislators gear up for the 2013 session.
