Nevada PAC wants cap on HOA collection fees

A Nevada organization called CHAMP (Concerned Homeowners Association Members PAC) describes itself as "a broad-based group of concerned Nevadans that includes homeowner associations, residents, investors, credit counselors, business organizations, labor unions, chambers of commerce, minority groups, and many others" and advocates a cap on fees charged by HOA collection companies.

The name CHAMP seems familiar and the organization may not be a new one. It appears connected to an issue that exploded this past summer in Las Vegas, where investors looking for good deals on foreclosed properties within HOAs complained they were being hit up with excessive collection fees levied by HOA collection companies for delinquent assessments unpaid by the erstwhile owners. The fight is in the courts as noted on this blog in September.
