Kaman & Cusimano Lawyers Promote Beneficial Legislation

Kaman & Cusimano attorneys, Darcy Mehling Good, Partner, and Magdalena Myers, were in Columbus this week as part of the Community Association Institute Legislative Action Committee’s 4th Annual Legislative Breakfast to promote legislation that will benefit Ohio’s condominium and homeowner associations.

 More than 60 people attended the event on Wednesday, March 9, 2016, providing ample opportunity for the committee’s members to discuss why it is so important to improve disclosure requirements and regulate private utility brokers.  Additionally, members of the Ohio LAC specifically requested support for HB 226, which, if passed, would create a “Super Lien” for condominium and homeowner associations in Ohio.  This is particularly important to Partner Darcy Mehling Good, Chair of Ohio LAC, who pointed out that in the years since “Super Lien” legislation was first introduced in Ohio, nine other states have adopted it, bringing the total number of states that have a “Super Lien” to twenty-two.  With each passing year that Ohio does not have the law, hundreds of condominium and homeowner associations are hurt by the loss of revenue.

 Of the day’s event, Ms. Good added:  “The breakfast was again a great success in providing a forum to meet face-to-face with members of both the Ohio House and Senate and their staff.  With over One Million Ohioans choosing to live in condominium and homeowner associations, it is imperative to identify legislators who are interested in legislation that will directly benefit so many of their constituents.”
