Description

Condominium and Property Owners' Association Acts; rental of units and lots; disclosure packets. Prohibits a unit owners' association or property owners' association from charging an annual or monthly rental fee or any other fee not expressly authorized in the Condominium Act or Property Owners' Association Act, respectively. The bill also (i) provides that an association has no lawful authority to evict a tenant and that any power of attorney executed by an owner authorizing the association to so evict shall be void; (ii) provides that if an owner designates a person licensed by the Real Estate Board as the owner's authorized representative with respect to any lease, the association shall recognize such representation without a formal power of attorney; and (iii) adds certain definitions regarding delivery and receipt of disclosure documents. The bill conforms the Property Owners' Association Act to the Condominium Act relating to provision of disclosure documents in electronic form and charges therefor. The bill contains technical amendments. Read the Bill »
