If enacted, H.B. 4015 would make
significant and extremely problematic changes to the Michigan Condominium Act,
it more difficult to approve budgets by requiring co-owner approval. This
is bad for property values and would lead to increased lawsuits against
condominiums if we do not have the financial ability to provide services
associations lifeblood by allowing co-owners to withhold
assessments. This would create a vicious cycle that would ultimately
bankrupt your community.
a bureaucratic mess by reviving a governmental administrator to sue
Condominium Associations and Volunteer Directors. This would create a
huge burden on taxpayers to pay for new administrative costs and greatly
increase legal expenses of every condominium.
