The following is from an email received by Attorney Perkins from the Community Associations Institute Massachusetts Legislative Action Committee:
Please help the Massachusetts Community Associations Institute Legislative Action Committee get a bill (H. 4605) that provides protection for condominium unit owners passed before the end of the legislative sessions on December 31, 2020!
H. 4605 is an act relative to construction defect claims by condominium owners.This bill would change the law so that the running of the statute of limitations and statute of repose for construction defect claims against developers does not commence until the developer turns over control of the association to the unit owners. This bill is necessary to correct a serious inequity that currently exists in the law whereby a developer of a condominium retains control of the association for an extended period of time, thus allowing the statute of limitations and statute of repose for construction defect claims to expire, and effectively preventing any remedy for condominium unit owners to sue the developer for construction defects.
CAI strongly believes that H. 4605 is fair, equitable and a necessary change to the law to protect condominium unit owners. Please take less than five minutes to tell you Senators to SUPPORT H. 4605.
