New Day for Texas HOAs: training for attorneys on new laws

This training is being put on for lawyers by lawyers, but I would think it possible for non-lawyers to access the training as well.  Contact TexasBarCLE here.

New Day for Texas HOAs: Overview of 2011 Reform Legislation for Condos and Owners Associations

Thursday, June 30th
2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

MCLE Credit: 1.5 hrs (.5 hrs ethics)
MCLE No: 901219435 

Registration Fee: $115

The 82nd Texas Legislature adopted sweeping new laws regulating residential property owners associations – new laws that protect homeowners and dramatically reform the environment in which HOAs operate. Getting a handle on the new laws is challenging because Texas did not adopt a single comprehensive act. Instead, we have a grab-bag of law changes which, collectively, spell an end to business-as-usual for HOAs in Texas. The same old advice, forms, and docs won’t work any more.

This 90-minute overview will identify:

  • New laws for HOAs that pursue delinquent assessments
  • New methods and requirements to foreclose an HOA’s assessment lien
  • Consumer protectionsNew laws regulating HOA elections, notices, and voting
  • Changes for resale certificates
  • Which new laws are already effective, which become effective September 1, and which become effective January 1, 2012
  • Which new laws apply to condos, and which don’t
  • Which new laws are “duplicates” with different effective dates.
  • Which new laws share the same section number of the Property Code, although dealing with different topics.

The written materials provide an indispensable roadmap to the law changes. No matter how your practice touches the world of HOAs – representing residential developers, individual homeowners, HOAs, managers, real estate brokers, title companies, residential lenders – you will find something essential in this overview.

The presenters have extensive experience with HOA law-making, co-presented the 2009 Legislative Update on this topic for the State Bar, and co-authored the “Statutory Evolution of Condominiums and Property Owners Associations in Texas,” published in 2002 by the University of Texas School of Law.
