PMK Partner R. Laree McGuire spoke with host Raelene Tenno on ThinkTech Hawaii’s Condo Insider on Thursday, February 24, 2022. McGuire discussed SB 2876 De Minimis Violations and HB 1784 Building Inspections and how these changes will impact condominiums and planned community associations in the State of Hawaii.
SB 2876 prohibits planned community associations, condominium associations, or their boards of directors from expending association funds to enforce de minimis violations of association rules or regulations that do not pose risks to the health and safety of other members, units, or unit owners and do not decrease their value. HB 1784 will require periodic inspections of certain walls and appurtenances of buildings five or more stories in height. It requires the state building code council to review the periodic inspection reports.
