Week 4 HOA Related Bills

As we enter the fourth week of the 2014 session, we are approaching the deadline for bills to be introduced in their respective houses. Once introduced, these bills are assigned to the various committees for review. There are currently four bills that have been introduced that we are monitoring related to homeowners associations. Recaps of the bill are as follow:

  • HB 2027
    Allows for owners in an age restricted community (active adult community) to drive golf carts or neighborhood electric vehicles on paved roads.  However, this would only apply to communities in unincorporated parts of large counties like Maricopa. For the communities that AAM currently manages, this will have an impact since our associations are located in incorporated area of the counties.
  • SB 1151
    Municipalities would not be allowed to prohibit a resident in a single-family detached home to keep fowl (chickens or other bird raised for food) in the backyard of the property. The city would however be allowed to restrict the number. This legislation would pre-empt local laws that are contrary.
  • SB 1184
    An extended definition of the planned community definition.
  • SB 1197
    Would prohibit gated and/or guarded communities from restricting the entry of process servers. Additionally the guard (if any) cannot “announce” to an owner that the process server has entered the association to serve that owner.
