Since taking office in 2013, state Sen. David Farnsworth has worked each year at the Legislature toward a unique goal: increasing oversight for homeowners associations in Arizona.
Along with other critics of the state’s HOA rules, the Mesa Republican says the regulations currently in place for HOAs are insufficient and lead to problems for homeowners. Farnsworth introduced legislation this year aimed at making changes to how the associations operate.
“We have a real mess,” Farnsworth said about the state of HOA regulations. “It’s a very complex and challenging situation and there’s no easy solution.”
