Virginia Law for Common Interest Community Managers - 2.0 hours
We have prepared this notice to sensitize you to a recent decision by the Virginia Supreme Court that reduces the level of enforceability of certain provisions that are found in association design standards and rules and regulations adopted by Boards of Directors. Specifically, in a case called Sainani v. Belmont Glen Homeowners Association, the Virginia Supreme Court ruled against an association that was attempting to enforce the association’s seasonal holiday decoration standards.
The Virginia Legislature approved the renumbering of several sections of the Virginia Code, including the Property Owners’ Association Act, the Condominium Act, and the Common Interest Community Management Act.
Starting October 1, 2019, the numbers of the code sections will officially change. You will notice updated references in liens and lawsuits being sent to you for signature.
