Proposed Maryland Legislation Would Require HOA Disclosure Statements and Limit Fees Charged by HOAs and Condos

Legislation pending the the Maryland General Assembly would require Homeowners Associations to provide information needed by a lot owner in connection with a pending re-sale of their home.  House Bill 412 and Senate Bill 229 would both require Homeowners Associations to make re-sale disclosure information available upon written request of a lot owner.  Presently, Section 11B-106 of the Maryland Homeowners Association Act provides that certain information be provided to a prospective purchaser in the community, and that certain information be included in the contract of sale.  The proposed legislation provides that, within twenty days of receiving a written request from the selling owner, the Association must provide the information necessary for the owner to comply with the disclosure requirements.  It also limits the fee that could be charged to the owner for preparing the information to the actual cost up to a maximum of Fifty Dollars.  Both bills also would impose this same Fifty Dollar limit in charges by condominium councils of unit owners for furnishing the re-sale disclosure information they are required to provide under Section 11-135 of the Maryland Condominium Act.
