SB 1196: A Guidebook for Community Associations
Those of you who have been reading this blog for some time know that I have been discussing the drafting of the 103-page association bill, SB 1196, the need for many of its provisions, the collaborative effort by so many different groups to safeguard its passage, the fear that the Governor would veto it and the joy that he didn’t.
Now that the bill has passed and with the Governor’s signature nonetheless, it is time to sort out what needs to be done to capitalize on its most positive provisions.
I am very pleased to provide you with a link to a 21-page Guidebook which the attorneys at my law firm, Katzman Garfinkel & Berger, have prepared to explain the many sweeping changes brought about by the recently passed SB 1196.
We hope this comprehensive guidebook will prove to be hugely beneficial to volunteer board members and their professional managers attempting to navigate these new waters. However, no matter how much depth we delve into with this 21-page guidebook, there undoubtedly will still be questions about the proper manner to implement many of these operational changes. Please make sure to reach out to us if we are your legal counsel or to your own counsel if we are not. Board members and managers who are educated on these changes promptly and thoroughly will undoubtedly reap the most benefit.
