The Maryland General Assembly convenes its 2012 state legislative session on January 11, 2012.
Hot topics regarding Maryland condominiums and homeowner associations are expected to be community association manager licensing, homeowner association dispute resolution procedures, developer to homeowner transition, and mandatory recycling for condos with 10 or more units.
After bills are introduced, the proposed legislation is assigned to a legislative committee for consideration and a public hearing. Most condo and HOA bills go to the Environmental Matters Committee in the House of Delegate and the Judicial Proceedings Committee in the Senate. If a bill is voted favorably by the Committee, it then goes to the full House or Senate for action.
Future blogposts on the Maryland Condominium & HOA Law Blog will cover proposed legislation of interest to Maryland condos, HOAs and co-ops as bills are introduced and acted on during the 2012 session of the Maryland General Assembly.
