SB 497 is a useless law



This is a private homeowner's website dedicated to protecting the rights of homeowners living in associations in the state of New Mexico. It's an effort by a few homeowners that have been subject to issues plaguing many homeowners in their HOA's in NM and the country.

We contend that the legislation thus far fails to provide the legal protection for NM homeowners who live in planned communities when disputes arise between them and their Boards.

We are not affiliated with any government or business agency but only exist to encourage equitable legislative protection for the 275,000 homeowners now living in associations in NM.

We believe this state needs an agency to oversee disputes related to HOA issues. This has been discussed before, but has continually been rejected by business concerns. Other states have agencies to help homeowners. New Mexico offers nothing except dispute resolution that has proved, in our experience, to be unsuccessful. Choices to resolve disputes are limited and the courts will continue to fill up with unnecessary complaints costing homeowners, and providing a profitable livelihood for attorneys, until our legislators wake up to the need and take action.

The original NM bill, HB 9, was a good start, and we applaud the Representative that initiated the charge. However important provisions were deleted by business interests and when the first bill finally passed into law, business gained their first strike for controls over associations. There will be other bills introduced in the future and homeowners must remain vigilant or their rights will continue to erode by those who stand to profit.

We hope to provide association homeowners a means to have a voice in New Mexico. We invite comments on experiences and complaints from homeowners and their Boards and ideas that might resolve the issues. With your help we can keep our legislators informed of our situations and invoke more protective legislation.
