A new law regulating homeowners associations became effective last May when Governor Henry McMaster signed it.
A key provision of that law takes effect January 10. It requires HOA’s to record with the county Register of Deeds office all bylaws, declarations, or master deeds, or any amendments to them.
Here is a quick run down of what else the law does:
- Rules and regulations are enforceable as soon as they are passed but must be available to the association members through dissemination or posting in a manner defined in the bill (conspicuous place or online). In order to keep enforcing any new rules, they must be recorded with the county Register of Deeds on or before January 10 of the following year.
- If the HOA is not incorporated under S.C. Nonprofit Corporation Act, the HOA must provide 2-days notice of a proposed action to increase the budget.
- The Magistrates Court now has jurisdiction over HOA monetary disputes.
- Requires the Department of Consumer Affairs to collect certain information from citizens who call about HOAs and to furnish the General Assembly a report of that information annually. Consumer Affairs has no other authority over HOAs.
- Requires the owner who is selling property to disclose if it is a part of an HOA.
If members have any questions about this legislation and how it might affect an HOA that you manage, your question can be submitted to the Gallivan White & Boyd Legal Hotline.
Johnny Edward Nix
Your Home Builders Association of Greenville would like to join the HBA of SC in expressing our condolences to HBA of South Carolina Executive Director Mark Nix on the passing of his father Johnny Nix.
Johnny Edward Nix, 74, passed away on December 14, 2018. Born in Columbia, SC on March 25, 1944, he was a son of the late Julius Edward Nix and Hilda Raines. Johnny graduated from Brooklyn Cayce High School where he played football. He also attended USC and was a lifelong Gamecock fan.
Johnny married Marjorie Nettles on April 6, 1967 and they raised 4 children together of whom he was extremely proud: Mark (Alicia) of Columbia, Missy Pusey (Eric) of Tega Cay, Stephen (Julie) of Leesburg, VA, and Susan Shirley of Columbia. He also had 9 grandchildren whom he loved very much: Katharine, Garrett, Olivia, and Molly Nix, Sarah Pusey, Ansley and James Nix, and Abigail and Emma Shirley.
Johnny spent many years in service to others. He enjoyed coaching his children’s’ little league teams, served as President of the PTO at Cardinal Newman High School, spent many years running book fairs at St. Joseph Catholic School, and was known to many as the “Turkey Man” for his years of cooking and carving turkeys at Thanksgiving for those in need. Johnny was also a proud charter member of the Knights of Columbus at St. Joseph Catholic Church where he served as Grand Knight for Chapter 12554, District Deputy, and was named Knight of the Year in 2001.
Johnny was predeceased by his parents and his sister, Patsy Ann Bradley.
A Memorial Mass will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, December 18, 2018, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Columbia. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Joseph Catholic School or a charity of your choice.
