Do New HOA Reform Laws Apply to Condominium Owner Councils?

Callers to the Texas REALTORS® Legal Hotline have asked if the recent homeowners association reform laws passed by the Texas Legislature also apply to condominium councils of owners. They do not.

The recent changes—such as requiring HOAs to solicit bids for contracts for services over $50,000, requiring HOAs to maintain websites with management certificates and meeting information, barring HOAs from requiring access to lease agreements, and others—do not apply to condominium councils of owners or condominium unit owners’ associations that are governed by Chapters 81 or 82 of the Property Code.
