Maryland Homeowners' Association, Inc.

A non-profit, all-volunteer, statewide organization protecting the rights of homeowners in condominium associations, homeowner associations and cooperatives. Please note we are the original MHA and not one with a similar name that uses our former web address.   We hope you will find helpful information here and on any other address on the web designed to help homeowners.  We hope at a future time help for Maryland homeowners will be available at one website.

Maryland Homeowners' Association's Mission

The mission of Maryland Homeowners' Association (MHA) is to advance good governance, civil discourse, best practices and informed citizen participation in the organization and administration of condominium associations, homeowner associations and housing cooperatives. MHA is a non-profit, non-partisan, volunteer organization committed to the protection of homeowner rights through education and public policy initiatives that promote greater accountability, transparency and communication between the leadership of common ownership communities and their members.

MHA welcomes homeowners interest and participation in our organization through volunteering and assisting us in our endeavors. MHA welcomes like-minded friends who want to enhance and expand our ability to assist other owners in understanding their rights and responsibilities as owners in a common-ownership community. If you can help, attend a MHA meeting and speak to one of the Board Members. Thank you in advance.

Maryland Homeowners’ Association Meeting for February Is Cancelled

The first Saturday in February is also the first day of the month. Under any other than the special circumstances we currently face, this would be a perfect way for MHA to begin the month. However, our Vice President Dr. Kamala Edwards passed away Dec. 3.  Our Vito DeLorenzo, who is very much alive and is noted for contributing much more to MHA than his voice on our organization phone, is enjoying his annual get-away at his second home in Florida with his wife, Donna. The third factor, yours truly, David Bosworth, spent most of January in Beebe Hospital, Lewes, Delaware, with pneumonia. I’m now out of the hospital and getting my strength back, but I think we will delay our start of 2020 meetings until Saturday, March 7. Vito and Donna may be back in March and I’m very certain I’ll be there. Meanwhile Vito and I’ll be talking about inviting one of the people he has spoken to who has special information about some thing or aspect pertinent to common ownership community concerns. I’m reassured by our friend who makes the Conference Room available at 312 Marshall Ave., Laurel, MD that he will have the door open for our meeting on that date. Stay tuned for more!
