Senate Bill 13-052 ("SB 52"), the bill introduced by Senator Mark Scheffel to address construction defects in "transit-oriented developments," was scheduled to be heard before the Senate Judiciary Committee today. As just reported by the Denver Business Journal, Senator Scheffel asked that the bill be removed from the Committee calendar while the Association of Homebuilders and Denver Regional Council of Governments finish a study on construction in developments near mass transit centers.
The bill as introduced would gut essential construction defect protections for HOAs situated within one-half mile of any commuter rail stop, commuter light rail stop, or commuter bus stop. My blog posted on January 23rd outlines the provisions of the bill as originally introduced.
As always, keep your eye on this blog for important updates on SB 52 and other bills impacting HOAs!
