AARP HOA Bill of Rights

David Kahne, a Houston ACLU attorney, who won the notable Brooks v. Northglen HOA case, has written on a HOA Bill of Rights for homeowners. Such a document has been absent from all CC&Rs going back to the Homes Association Handbook, TB #50, for the mass merchandising of planned communities, published in 1964 by ULI with the help of federal agencies.

David Kahne’s 69 page report can be found here:

Many HOA advocates are acknowledged by David. The cover page reads:

A BILL of RIGHTS for HOMEOWNERS in ASSOCIATIONS:
Basic Principles of Consumer Protection and Sample Model Statute

  1. Is there a Uniform Homeowners Association Act in existence in any state in the union? If so I would like to know about it.
