Updated Lien Priority Law Benefits Condominium and Homeowners Associations in New Jersey

Posted by on Mar 29, 2019 in Collections, Foreclosure, Legislation, Uncategorized

By Ronald L. Perl, Esq., CCAL

On March 25, 2019, the New Jersey Legislature passed a bill that will enhance the lien priority for condominium associations and, for the first time, give the same lien priority to homeowners associations.

If this legislation is signed by Governor Murphy, both condominium and homeowners associations will enjoy a limited priority over all other liens (except for municipal liens or liens for federal taxes). The legislation would amend the lien priority provisions already contained in the Condominium Act and add the lien priority provisions in the Planned Real Estate Development Full Disclosure Act (PREDFA).

CAI-NJ CALL TO ACTION: Zombie Foreclosure Legislation is Scheduled for a Vote on Thursday, January 4, 2018!

Posted by on Jan 3, 2018 in Foreclosure, Legislation, Uncategorized

 

 

CAI-NJ’s Legislative Action Committee has issued a call to action for all New Jersey community associations.

 

Assembly Bill No. 3823 is scheduled for a vote before the New Jersey General Assembly on Thursday, January 4, 2018. This proposed legislation seeks to amend the law, which currently allows for an expedited mortgage foreclosure process (although not mandatory) for vacant and abandoned (“zombie”) properties. Specifically, this legislation proposes to allow community associations to either: (1) compel payment of association fees by the mortgage lender when the lender fails to proceed with the foreclosure process on a vacant and abandoned property in an expedited fashion; or (2) compel the appointment of a fiscal agent (receiver) over the abandoned property.
