HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 115

(By Delegates Kump, Howell, Ellem, Duke and Manypenny)

 

 

 

Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the “Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act" and all other West Virginia laws and regulations applicable to home owner’s associations for the purpose of clarifying and updating the status of West Virginia homeowner’s associations and proposing legislation that may aid in the relation of consumers with these associations.

    Whereas, An increasing number of West Virginians live in homes that are part of planned developments that are subject to governance by home owner’s associations; and

    Whereas, The Legislature has previously, through statutes such as the Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act, attempted not only to regulate the actions of these associations, to clarify the powers of these bodies and their relationship to the government and people but also to protect the interest of the public; and

    Whereas, The Legislature seeks to address concerns that there does not presently exist sufficient oversight to ensure that home owner's associations adequately protect consumers’ interests; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the “Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act" and all other West Virginia laws and regulations applicable to home owner’s associations for the purpose of clarifying and updating the status of West Virginia homeowner’s associations and proposing legislation that may aid consumers when dealing with these associations; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2013, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
