New Law Formally Recognizes and Permits the Common Use of Zoom and Other Electronic Formats to Hold Condominium Unit Owner Meetings, Which was Previously Only Permissible by Cooperatives and HOAs
On June 30, 2022, Governor Hochul signed Senate Bill 7278 in to law thereby amending Real Property Law 339-v to permit a condominium’s board of managers, in its sole discretion, to convene unit owner meetings via electronic means, such as Zoom or Microsoft TEAMS.
While the virtual meeting option was made available to cooperative and homeowners association boards during the COVID pandemic, condominiums were excluded.
