2013 Legislative Update for Virginia HOAs

May 7, 2013 on 7:46 am | In Common Interest Community, HOA, HOA litigation, Land Use Planning, Real Estate Litigation, Real Estate Strategies, Susan B. Tarley, Unit Owners Association, Weekly Tweets | No Comments

The Virginia Legislative Action Committee (“LAC”) had a busy 2013 legislative session. This is my third year on the LAC and each year brings new challenges. Our mission is to monitor and influence legislation affecting community associations. This year I served as the Chair of the LAC and we monitored over 30 bills and were active on over 10 of the bills. We were successful in getting some bills tabled, some modified, and some passed. All of the bills cited below are effective July 1, 2013 unless otherwise noted. If you have any questions on the impact of these changes for your community, please let us know.

VLR 2012 – Recap

August 15, 2012 on 9:21 pm | In Common Interest Community, HOA, HOA litigation, Unit Owners Association, Weekly Tweets | No Comments

We are back from the Virginia Leadership Retreat, and wow, there is so much to process.  The VLR is an amazing event based on its volunteer workforce.  Our VLR committee is comprised of volunteers from the three CAI chapters in Virginia.  I am pleased to be one of the committee members.  The committee members plan the retreat, develop the educational program, coordinate all of the  retreat events,  produce all of the communications, invitations, and instructions for speakers and attendees, stuff the welcome bags, make name tags…. if its part of the retreat, its done by our committee.  All of our speakers, other than our keynote speaker, are volunteers who actually pay to attend the retreat.  Our speaker evaluations bear out the top quality speakers and presentations that truly define our retreat.

John and I both taught sessions at the retreat.  John presented with two attorney colleagues, Andrew Elmore and Jeanne Lauer, on litigation issues for community associations.  With a combined 65 years of experience, John, Andrew and Jeanne provided valuable information on dealing with lawsuits.

I presented on legislation that mandates permitting green initiatives over restrictive covenants that prohibit such things as solar panels, clotheslines, wind energy devices, and energy efficiency measures.  I was paired with Pia Trigiani who practices law in Richmond, and  with our combined 50+ years of experience (yikes!), we had a lively and productive discussion with our audience on green initiatives.

Our event is attended by managers and business partners who are not only dedicated to their occupations, but also truly committed to our industry. Sharing information and experiences and networking make all of us better at what we do.

Finally, I think that all I need to say is two words:  The Homestead.  Yes, it is a wonderful respite.  If you have never been to The Homestead, we highly recommend the experience.  It was great networking with colleagues on the Old Course, at the pool, or over dinner at Sam Snead’s Tavern or the 1776 Grille.  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the fabulous breakfast buffet.

I’m already looking forward to next year’s retreat!
