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.

Notice of Upcoming Meeting!

We are pleased to announce our first MHA Meeting of 2019.  It will be held March 2, 2019 at 312 Marshall Ave., Laurel, MD in the Conference Room on the first floor just beyond the elevators.  Time will be 10:00 am until noon.

We are hopeful attendees will be interested in becoming MHA members, since membership is now based on the calendar year and not on the date and month membership payment is made as was done in the past.  The previous payment system was too taxing for our limited staff to continue.  Please consider becoming a member and your $25 payment will ensure you are in good stead through December 2019.

We will have membership forms at the 3/2 meeting and payment can be made by check or by credit or debit card using my Samsung phone and a Square card reader.  You can also make payment right here on our webpage.  Thank you very much!

We really regret losing two significant MHA Board Members, Judy Hanrahan, Secretary and Mike Querns, Treasurer.  Judy and her son sold the home they owned in a qualifying homeowner association and Mike resigned because he wanted to use his time for other interests.  We hope to find volunteers interested in filling these essential positions.  Please consider and let us know, 

From time to time it’s a good idea to state the reason we exist.  MHA tries 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.

MHA hopes 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.  As previously indicated, you may contact me by email (Bosworth.d@gmail.com) or phone (301-808-0930.)  Thank you!
