Resources for Legislators

More than 74.1 million Americans reside in homeowners associations, condominiums, housing cooperatives, and other planned communities. All of these communities – more than 350,000 nationally – share a few essential goals – preserving the nature and character of the community, providing services and amenities to residents, protecting property values, and meeting the established expectations of owners.
