Almost 70 million Americans live in some form of common interest community. The entity most responsible for regulating their homes and activities is therefore not the public local government, but a private board or homeowners association. These boards are often empowered with broad discretion to enact and interpret a wide array of rules, to adjudicate alleged violations of those rules, and to impose monetary and injunctive penalties against those found to be in violation. When aggrieved homeowners turn to the courts for relief, how should the actions of the board be reviewed? This webinar will discuss the deference that courts extend to homeowners associations and explore critiques and alternatives.
Professors' Corner is a monthly teleconference featuring law professors discussing recent cases or issues of interest to real estate practitioners and scholars.
