Here's a snap shot of a few items it covered:
Other provisions in SB 1196
â€¢ Lowers the cost of condo-ownership by repealing a requirement that owners purchase individual unit owner insurance coverage.
â€¢ Removes the requirement for mandatory retrofits of sprinkler systems in condos over 75 feet high.
â€¢ Requires lenders to pay more in past-due assessments on foreclosed properties.
â€¢ Allows associations to deny owners or occupants the use of common areas and recreational amenities when the owner is more than 90 days delinquent in paying financial obligations due to the association.
â€¢ Allows associations to divert rent paid by a tenant and use it to pay delinquent assessments owed by that unitâ€™s owner.
What a good question. Actually I have not heard of an HOA asking the tenent to pay the HOA fee unless their lease states that they are responsible for it.
I have heard of HOA's not permitting a tenant to use the facilities if the HOA payments are in arrears. That is an issue for the landlord and tenent to work out.
