UTA has sent a letter to the Chairs of the appropriate committees in Congress expressing our opposition to legislation that would institute a moratorium preventing HOAs from collecting dues during this pandemic. A provision of HR 6379 and its companion measures in the Senate, S. 3565, would suspend debt collection for four months after the President lifts a state of emergency, and prohibit HOAs from collecting dues.
”A moratorium on such debt collection would have the unintended consequence of preventing HOAs from having the funds to maintain and repair facilities, roads, roofs and equipment,” wrote UTA President, David Dutcher. “The continued payment of dues is also necessary for the associations to pay utilities, taxes, security and insurance.”
Members are encouraged to contact their representative and two Senators to express their opposition as well.
