DC Councilmember Proposes Bill to Strengthen Rights of Condo Owners
On Tuesday, DC Councilmember Anita Bonds introduced the “Condominium Owner Bill of Rights Amendment Act of 2015”, legislation that aims to provide greater protections to condominium owners in the city.
Specifically, the bill would require mediation before a condominium board in a building is allowed to foreclose on one of the unit owners. According to a release, it would also “strengthen the ethical and fiduciary obligations of condo board officers and members” although more specific details of this provision were not provided. A condominium bill of rights would also be required to be given to the owner when they move into the unit.
“Across the District, thousands and thousands of residents are governed by condo associations with varying degrees of experience, knowledge, and intent,” explained Councilmember Bonds. “This bill will establish a uniform statement of owners’ rights and assist condominium owners by guaranteeing them greater protections under law.”
UrbanTurf has reached out to Councilmember Bonds’ office to get more details on the bill.
