Great News! In a victory for all of Ohio's homeowner associations and communities, the Ohio Senate voted 29-1 to pass S.B. 187, the Ohio Planned Communities Act. The Bill will now be referred to the Ohio House of Representatives, where it will be assigned to a committee for further consideration and a vote.
If passed by the House, the Ohio Planned Community Act would give Ohio's homeowner associations a statutory foundation, similar to Ohio's condominiums. The Act will provide Ohio homeowners with the consumer protections they deserve by protecting their investment through statutorily organized associations creating strong neighborhoods and communities. This includes the ability to amend a declaration,require annual elections, inspect the association's records, and to handle rule enforcement issues in-house to avoid litigation.
Thank you for your continued support. Stay tuned to www.ohiohoalaw.com for updates on this important legislation for Ohio's communities.
