Colorado Construction Defects Legislation: Denver Post gets it wrong AGAIN!

Posted 05-06-2016 at 07:39 AM by coloradohoaforum (Homeowners Associations (HOA))

Re: Construction - defects bill hits snag, May 6, Denver Post

Our letter to the Denver Post concerning their problem of excluding HOA home owner's input into the Construction Defects Legislation issue and including the Community Association Institute (CAI) that represents HOA property managers and lawyers (NOT home owners) into the discussion. No matter how many times the post reporters are apprised of this concern they continue to seek out the CAI to represent home owners.

Colorado HB 16-1217: another ineffective HOA Bill

Posted 04-28-2016 at 11:02 AM by coloradohoaforum (Homeowners Associations (HOA))

We have received several emails that have asked why we haven't been excited about HB 16-1217 (see below). The presentation of this Bill is that it will change things for home owners; it will implement the significant components of the State HOA Study 2013; and it will improve upon home owner's rights and an ability to resolve HOA disputes out of court. Unfortunately, none of this is fact and HB 16-1217 is more "feel good" legislation than impacting. You make the call. We would like...

HOA Home Owners to Continue to Pay Fees with no Justification or Receipt

Posted 02-22-2016 at 08:52 PM by coloradohoaforum (Homeowners Associations (HOA))

HB 16-1133 was defeated in Committee, February 22, 2016. This Bill was simple, no burden on businesses or taxpayers, and only required HOA property managers (PM), also known as Community Association Managers, to provide a detailed receipt to home owners when fees are paid. The Bill did not preclude any fees from being charged or limit amounts: just provide a detailed receipt of work completed. The Bill was intended to mitigate the practice of HOA PM's duplicate and triplicate billing for services...

Colorado HB 16-1217: another administrative, non-impacting HOA Bill

Posted 02-11-2016 at 08:37 AM by coloradohoaforum (Homeowners Associations (HOA))

Here we go again, HOUSE BILL 16-1217 is another HOA Bill introduced this session that sounds good, feels good, but will have zero affect on resolving any HOA home owner's issue. This will make it three administrative, un-impacting HOA Bills this session. This Bill will provide: 1) optional rate structures for HOA registration fees and 2) requires the State HOA Office to develop a list of mediators and arbiters who are available to hear complaints concerning elections and other HOA home owner issues....

Proposed Colorado HOA Legislation to have Immediate Benefits to Home Owners and Small Business

Posted 02-05-2016 at 08:18 AM by coloradohoaforum (Homeowners Associations (HOA))
Updated 02-05-2016 at 08:19 AM by coloradohoaforum (line spacing)

The Colorado legislature will consider three home owner's association (HOA) Bills this session. Two will be mostly administrative and one could serve to be the most impacting HOA legislation of the past 20 years improving upon responsibilities and accountability in the HOA property manager industry and the potential to save HOA home owners millions of dollars annually.

SB 16-082, HOA Whistleblower (intimidation) Protection, and HB 16-1149, Remove Budget Reporting Exemption HOAs Predate...
