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 July 11th Meeting will be by Conference Call

We had previously announced our July meeting would be on the 4th, the first Saturday of July, which was also Independence Day. However, more than one Board Member thought some Board Members and Attendees may have other plans for the holiday and it would be preferable to meet the 2nd Saturday on the 11th. Therefore, we decided to change our meeting to the 11th.

The Board and some members have asked why we didn't use the type of virtual meeting software that in addition to being compatible with phones can be used on computers or computer tablets to permit participants to see each other when they spoke. For now we'll use 'Free-Conference Call' which we think will offer the visual system support in the very near future. Time for the meeting as usual is 10:00 a.m. until noon or thereabouts. The phone number and Access Code will be provided shortly. We hope you'll join us on July 11.

As we mentioned last month, 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.
