A 2018 change to state law (S.C. Code Ann. § 27-30-340) requires DCA to collect certain data from complaints involving homeowners associations (HOA). Information collected is to be reported to the Governor, General Assembly and the public by January 31st each year. The Department issued the first report on January 31, 2019. The report is in a categorized, filterable and searchable format. The Department is reviewing the complaint data received in conjunction with the complaints forms for potential improvements. Any suggestions for content or process improvements may be submitted to DCA by e-mail or snail mail.
