Homeowners In Arizona: Things Do Not Just Happen. Things Are Made To Happen!

The first legislative session of Arizona is coming up on January 11th, 2021 (41–1101). This is a great opportunity to improve transparency and protect homeowners’ rights by strengthening statutes through the legislative branch. Homeowners deserve to be treated fairly and be informed of what is happening in their communities; they should be encouraged to speak, vote, and participate in the decision-making process of our Arizona communities. Each legislature session is a constant struggle against HOA industry special interests. Groups like Arizona Homeowners Coalition (AZHOC) and Nesso Community Institute (Nesso) want to protect and enhance homeowner’s rights but need your help to stay involved.

During the COVID-19 pandemic homeowners and tenants were provided very limited options when it came to participating in their communities. New bills will be proposed in the following weeks, so we need to act in consequence, in order to protect the rights of homeowners in Arizona, which are seeking justice and fulfillment of property rights. The bills in draft that we are aware of; 2 bills from the short legislature session of 2020 (HB-2483, SB-1412) and one bill rumored to reduce the requirements of CC&R changes.

It is well-known that the Homeowner Association (HOA) industry has established lobbyists and bottomless pockets. The HOA industry includes management companies, attorneys, collection agencies, and service providers which draw most — if not all — of their income from our homeowner associations. United we stand: let’s help all homeowners in the best way we can, otherwise, divided we fall. We need more support from you, the members of the associations which directly power the HOA industry. Homeowners deserve to live free from the constant harassment of real estate lobbyists and developers. Especially now, in this time of pandemic and economic upheaval, Arizona’s homeowners deserve to feel safe and secure in their homes.

In clear, understandable language, new bills should ideally provide detailed information on a variety of legal situations that can arise between neighbors, homeowners, companies, and realtors. If you want things to change you need to get involved with your community and work for change. It is important that you take your time to express your own opinions and defend your rights. Change is only possible if each of us takes an active role in this; if we all work together, provide leadership, support each other, and collaborate then true reform and protection of homeowner’s rights in the common interest communities will be achieved by the collective voice of 3.5 million Arizona homeowners. Things do not just happen. Things are made to happen! And that is ultimately up to us! Let your voices be heard!
