Division of Land Sales, Condominiums, and Mobile Homes Improves Timeliness, But Faces Funding Issues, Report No. 99-37, March 2000
 
Full report in PDF format


  • The division has been generally responsive to our prior recommendations relating to the regulation of condominiums. However, the Legislature has not clarified its directives relating to master associations. Thus, it is not clear who should receive complaints regarding master associations or how these complaints should be addressed.
  • Although the division closes many complaint investigations in a timely manner, it needs to assess what actions it can take to encourage respondents to be more timely in filing certain needed documents such as financial statements.
  • The land sales program does not generate revenues sufficient to cover its costs. The Legislature needs to consider several funding alternatives to address the program’s deficit.
  • The division and the Legislature need to address a number of issues relating to the regulation of mobile home parks. These issues relate to improving disclosures made to residents of parks and encouraging park owners to enforce their own park-specific rules. The division needs to collect additional information relating to mediation options before recommending any actions in this area.
