Homeowners association members and board members alike may learn something useful at the HOA Legislative Update meeting hosted by the city of Phoenix from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 26. The meeting will be held at Burton Barr Central Library, 1221 N. Central Ave., in the lecture room on the fourth floor.
Attorneys from Mulcahy Law Firm will lead the discussion and go over several laws recently passed that effect HOAs. This year the legislature passed new laws regarding rental properties, voting, political signs, parking, open meetings, golf carts and more.
Following the presentation on the new laws, the audience will have a chance to ask questions and have their questions answered by the HOA attorneys.
The city of Phoenix has held HOA-related classes on and off for years. Beth Mulcahy of Mulcahy Law Firm said her firm is dedicated to providing free education to HOAs across the Valley. They have several classes scheduled for the remainder of the year, including another with the city of Phoenix in October.
“Our firm likes to be the leader in education for all the associations in the Valley,” she said. “We teach free classes all the time. Our firm’s philosophy is we focus exclusively on this area of the law, we’re here to help people, and we want to make sure our boards are aware of the laws that are out there so they don’t get in trouble and vice versa. We want homeowners to know when they live in an association there are certain restrictions they have to abide by.”
The meeting is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.phoenix.gov/nsd/neighborhoodcollege.
