COLUMBIA, S.C. – The South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs (SCDCA) is releasing the fourth Homeowners Association (HOA) Complaint Report. The 2023 Report is a compilation of data from complaints received January 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022. Some of the highlights include:
SCDCA will offer a free webinar “2023 HOA Complaint Report” on Wednesday, February 22 at 10:30 a.m. The webinar will go over the complaint report, the types of complaints received, complaint trends and the department’s role in collecting complaint data.

Changes to state law in 2018 require SCDCA to collect certain data from complaints involving homeowners’ associations and report it annually. The report is presented in a categorized, filterable and searchable format and can be viewed in its entirety by visiting consumer.sc.gov and clicking on News, then Reports.
SCDCA processes and mediates consumer complaints against businesses regulated by DCA, refers complaints that fall within another agency’s jurisdiction and mediates those complaints against businesses that are unregulated.
