NH - Adapt and Thrive
August 15th marked the effective date of two new pieces of legislation in New Hampshire. The measures introduced as House Bill 501 and House Bill 502 were passed and signed by the governor. What follows is an explanation of each and the measures required for New Hampshire associations to be in compliance with the new laws.
HOUSE BILL 501 amends RSA 356-B:37, VI. Briefly looking at recent history on this provision, the changes to RSA 356-B:37, VI that were imposed by the much-discussed HB 353 were: 1) removal of language requiring unit owners to pay the cost associated with copies of meeting minutes; and 2) allowing associations to provide meeting minutes electronically and by publication on an association website. The new changes per House Bill 501 are: a) specification that meeting minutes are to be taken by the association’s secretary or other designee authorized by the board; b) electronic or paper copies of meeting minutes must be preserved for at least three (3) years following the date of the meeting; and c) the board must respond to an owner’s written request for a copy of meeting minutes within fifteen (15) days of receipt of the request. Compliance with these measures is straightforward and does not appear to present a challenge for associations.
