Contact Members of the House Judiciary Committee to Express Your Opposition with Bill 6175!
Let them know this bill compromises homeowner rights and protections. SSB 6175 specifically allows HOAs to commit a wrongful act until a court overturns the wrongful act. With no government oversight, investigation or governance of HOAs, the homeowners must pay to hire an attorney to protect them against the wrongful act and have a court adjudicate the wrongful act.
