Sponsor: Senator Griffin

Overview: SB 1482 contains numerous provisions related to homeowners' associations (HOAs), including the requirements necessary for municipalities to mandate such associations.

League Position: NEUTRAL - The League was neutral on the measure because of having extensive input via stakeholder meetings and vetting the issue with a wide variety of cities and towns.

Summary: SB 1482 allows municipalities to only require homeowners' associations for the purposes of maintaining community property when approved as a part of the preliminary plat, final plat or specific plan. HOAs may also enter into maintenance agreements with cities and towns. These provisions of the bill go into effect upon the general effective date.
