Rental units or parcels and Delinquent Owners
December 1, 2010 - Sylvia Heldreth
Senate Bill 1196 became law this year. It states that if a unit or parcel is occupied by a tenant, and the unit or parcel owner is "delinquent in paying any monetary obligation due to the association", the association may demand in writing "that the tenant pay the future monetary obligations" related to the unit or parcel directly to the association. An association can evict a tenant who does not comply.
Unit owners complain that this is an unfair burden upon them, especially considering the financial straits that have caused them to become delinquent in the first place. They say they need the income from the unit they have rented. Association officials say that they deserve the funds because they have a responsibility to protect the association's assets. Fair? or not?
What do you think?
