Description

Property Owners' Association Act; designation of authorized representative by seller; association disclosure packet. Provides that unless expressly authorized by the Property Owners' Association Act ( 55-508 et seq.) or the declaration or as otherwise provided by law, no association may require the use of any for sale sign that is (i) an association sign or (ii) a real estate sign that does not comply with the requirements of the Real Estate Board. An association may, however, prohibit the placement of signs in the common area and establish reasonable rules and regulations that regulate (a) the number of real estate signs, (b) the geographical location of real estate signs, (c) the manner in which real estate signs are affixed to real property, and (d) the period of time after settlement when the real estate signs must be removed. In addition, no property owners' association may require any lot owner to execute a formal power of attorney if the lot owner designates a person licensed by the Real Estate Board to serve as his authorized representative in the sale of a lot. The bill provides that if a request has been made to a association or its common interest community manager to furnish the disclosure packet and such packet is not provided within 14 days of the request, it shall be deemed a waiver of any claim for delinquent assessments or of any violation of the declaration, bylaws, rules and regulations, or architectural guidelines existing as of the date of the request with respect to the subject lot. The bill also authorizes the Common Interest Community Board to assess a monetary penalty for failure to deliver the association disclosure packet within 14 days against the association or its common interest community manager.

Sen. Bill Stanley (R-Moneta): PART OF THE COMMONWEALTH'S ATTORNEYS TO PROVIDE INFORMATION, AND IT REQUIRES THE DEFENDANT UPON WRITTEN, ONCE THEY GIVE NOTICE INSTEAD OF A MOTION, FOR REQUEST OF DISCOVERY, THEN THEY ALSO HAVE TO PROVIDE BASICALLY THE SAME THING. IT ALSO PROTECTS THOSE WITNESSES WHICH MAY BE PUT IN DANGER BY A CRIMINAL CASE, SO THEREFORE IT GIVES COMMONWEALTH'S ATTORNEYS LIBERAL ABILITIES TO REDACT NAMES AND/OR INFORMATION, SUBJECT TO REVIEW IN CAMERA BY A COURT, IF A DEFENDANT OBJECTS.
