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 September 5, 2020 Meeting
Our meeting for September is on the first Saturday of the month as usual, on the 5th from 10 am to noon. It is appropriate to announce this meeting and those scheduled in the future will be accessible by Zoom. Information about connecting to the meeting, visually or by telephone, will be furnished to members by email as well as posted here.
There will be interesting news about positive efforts in Prince George's County by MHA personnel to help a homeowner who purchased a home but has had difficulty being able to move in and enjoy the property. We're proud our efforts in this case involved direct involvement not limited to talk but Action in the truest sense of the word. Be sure to attend to hear more. This will be a most important meeting.
Yes, Zoom will be utilized for future meetings so we have the option of seeing each other as we would in a good, old fashioned meeting. Of course, for those who prefer to attend by telephone we will publish the number for that too.
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 have 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 this information call the Common Ownership office within the respective Maryland county where such information may be available.
