HOA laws: Who influences the Legislators?

The HOA Industry; Management Companies, Attorneys, Collection agencies, and service providers draw most if not all of their income from HOA Associations. These Associations have mostly unlimited ability to assess their homeowners for any and all their cost. The HOA industry is represented by three primary trade groups:

  • CAI:        Community Association Institute a national organization
  • AACM:    Arizona Association of Community Managers
  • HBACA:  Home Builders Association of Central Arizona

Every dime that circulates thru the HOA industry comes out of the pockets of the 3.5 Million Arizona Homeowners. 

Have you ever wondered why there is only one law firm in Arizona that exclusively represents homeowners, while there are hundreds if not thousands of attorneys that exclusively represent the HOA/Condo associations and builders?

Its about the Money

With that money comes paid professional lobbyist representing the HOA Trade groups, special events for legislators, and contributions to political campaigns.  The voice of these trade groups is very well heard at the Capital.

Despite this Arizona has been blessed with individual homeowner advocate pioneers, who worked hard to fight these trade groups and get laws passed to help protect your rights, one small step at a time. It was on the shoulders and hard work of these pioneers that the Arizona Homeowners Coalition was formed.

True reform and protection of homeowner’s rights in these common interest communities will only be achieved by the collective voice of 3.5 Million homeowners demanding that protection by their government.

For every Legislative Session we will propose changes to statutes to improve transparency, protect your rights to speak and vote and participate in the decision making of your community, to ensure fundamental fairness is established over the rights of the associations to fine or foreclose on homeowners. We will provide you the details of our bills as well as any other bill introduced affecting homeowners when they are introduced. We have also provided for your information, links to HOA related bills that were introduced in earlier legislative sessions.
