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 August 1st Meeting
Our meeting for August will be held on the first Saturday of the month as is usual; however, unlike most of our meetings, this one will be conducted by our Vice Presidents, Delegate Marvin Holmes, Jr. and Mrs. Brandi Shelton and not David Bosworth. Mr. Bosworth is taking a leave of absence for August although he may listen in to the meeting by Zoom.
An agenda for August isn't available presently (it will be added if available later) but we can be certain a meeting led by Delegate Holmes will devote attention to legislation of interest to homeowners that will be introduced or re-introduced in the 2021 session. Delegate Holmes told us at a prior meeting NOW IS THE TIME to think about the legislative ideas that may take the form of Bills that will be introduced in January 2021. This will be a most important meeting.
Yes, August will be supported by Zoom and MHA members and the Board will be able to view one another as well as listen to each other. We hope all future meetings will permit visual features and we will pursue this. We may establish our own Zoom account (the August Zoom account isn't MHA's.)
As we have mentioned previously, people call the MHA phone number thinking we have specific information about the property managers for particular HOA's or condos. Unfortunately neither we nor any Maryland state office has this information. Because management companies aren't required by Maryland law to register their businesses, there isn't any state repository of this information. We recommend those seeking that information should call the Common Ownership office within the respective Maryland county where such information may be available.
