As 2016 soon comes to a close, it’s only natural to wonder what’s in store for community associations in 2017. Of course nobody can see the future, but we can certainly make predictions based on what we saw in 2016.
Below are the Altitude Community Law predictions for 2017:
- We will continue to see proposed new legislation effecting common interest communities both on a state and federal level, including but not limited to:
- Additional restrictions on construction defects actions by associations;
- Clarification on superliens;
- Rights of Air BNBs in community associations;
- Further revisions to CCIOA adding provisions to which pre-CCIOA communities are subject;
- Clarification on applicability of the budget ratification process to pre-CCIOA communities; and
- Transfer fees.
- Courts will continue to scrutinize legal actions initiated by associations including but not limited to collections, covenant enforcement, and the court petition process to amend declarations, which will mean associations will need to ensure they are dotting their I’s and crossing their T’s in all instances.
- Additional questions will be added to the State Manager License Exam expanding the total pool of questions for the future exam takers.
- Addition of regulations to Community Association Managers Rules by DORA.
