These bills cover various topics related to Georgia's real estate laws, neighborhood associations, and property management. The changes being considered include ensuring that community rules are followed and homeowners' rights are protected in community associations. When I searched on LegiScan for Georgia bills about real estate, community associations, property management, and communities in Georgia, I found several comments from the 2023–2024 regular session that were useful:

  1. Georgia HB220: This bill aims to amend Title 44 of the Georgia Code, focusing on property matters. It addresses the enforcement of condominium and property owners' association instruments, rules, and regulations. It includes provisions for compliance with and enforcement of covenants and instruments for specific planned communities​​. [STOP This BILL]

  2. Georgia HB145: This legislation proposes amendments to Article 6 of Chapter 3 of Title 44, dealing with property owners' associations. It introduces certificates of good standing for the payment of annual assessments and mandates associations to offer participation in alternative dispute resolution before effectuating a lien on a lot for unpaid judgments. The bill also positions such liens as inferior to liens for unpaid medical bills​​​​​​. [Partially Supported with Changes]

  3. Georgia HB303: This bill seeks to amend Chapter 3 of Title 44, which regulates specialized land transactions. It focuses on protecting homeowners, condominium owners, and property owners in community associations​​​​​​.

  4. Georgia HB514: This bill, known as the Housing Regulation Transparency Act, intends to amend Chapter 66 of Title 36 of the Georgia Code, which is related to zoning procedures. It includes provisions for the length and renewal of moratoriums related to zoning decisions and revises notice and hearing requirements for certain zoning decisions​​​​​​.

  5. Georgia HB522: This bill aims to amend Article 6 of Chapter 3 and Article 3 of Chapter 5 of Title 44 of the Georgia Code, which concerns property owners' associations, covenants, and warranties. It prohibits property owners' associations from creating or enforcing covenants that infringe upon a lot owner's rights to install solar energy devices or display the United States flag​​​​​​.
