NEW Utah HOA laws on track for passage in 2015
Two new hoa laws, HB 98 Association Amendments and HB 99 Open meetings, passed through House Business and Labor Committee by unanimous vote of the committee members and HB 99 just passed the house and is on the way to Senate. John Morris of Morris Sperry was involved in the drafting of both bills. HB 99 will guarantee owner access and the right to notice of regular meetings of the board of directors and management committees in condominium and homeowners associations in Utah. HB 98 contains long negotiated changes to further balance the relationship between HOAs and owners who rent their units and homes. Utah HB 98 also contains new provisions clarifying HOA fine provisions and changes that will finally allow commercial condominiums to fine owners rather than have to initiate lawsuits in every enforcement action. Morris Sperry is at the frontline in the drafting and passage of balanced laws affecting community assocaitions.
