Maryland Homeowners' Association, Inc.A non-profit, all-volunteer, statewide organization protecting the rights of homeowners in condominium associations, homeowner associations and cooperatives.

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.

Notice! Special Guest at our Upcoming Meeting!
We are pleased to report Delegate Marvin Holmes has agreed to attend our May 4 meeting. As Chair, Housing and Real Property Subcommittee of the Environment and Transportation Committee, Delegate Holmes areas of concern include condominiums and HOAs. We will ask him to speak to us about the bills that passed or failed to pass in the recently concluded session and related homeowner issues. Our meetings are held from 10:00 am until noon and are at 312 Marshall Ave., Laurel, MD in the Conference Room on the first floor just beyond the elevators.
Our meetings are open to all and we're always hopeful those attending will be interested in becoming members. Annual membership is a modest $25. We will have membership forms at the May 4 meeting and payment can be made by check or by credit or debit card using a Samsung smartphone with a Square credit card reader. You can also make payment online at the 'Becoming A Member' web page at http://marylandhomeownersassociation.info.
MHA's raison d'être is to assist owners living in common ownership communities with help in understanding their rights and responsibilities living in such communities. Additionally, if an owner is subjected to conditions that would seem unreasonable, we may offer to examine the pertinent documents of that association to help the owner determine if their rights have been infringed upon. As we've said many times before, we’re 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.
We hope homeowners will participate in our organization by volunteering and assisting. We welcome like-minded friends who want to enhance and expand our ability to assist others 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. Also, please feel free to contact me by email (Bosworth.firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone 301-808-0930.
