On June 17 the Governor of Texas signed House Bill No. 1455, which amends the Texas Uniform Condominium Act. The bill requires condominium associations to fulfill certain preconditions prior to initiating a construction defect or design lawsuit. At its core, House Bill No. 1455 prevents a condominium board from making litigation decisions without meaningful input or approval from the unit owners themselves. Note: This legislation is similar to the bill supported by CAR, which failed to make it through the General Assembly this year.
