A Pending Crisis for Lake Associations

UPDATE on the proposed changes to the Planned Real Estate Development Full Disclosure Act (“PREDFDA”): In August, Governor Murphy conditionally vetoed the 2019 PREDFDA amendments, concerned it would negatively impact a lake association’s ability to manage its property and comply with dam safety and water quality regulations. 

The Senate passed the changes made by the Governor, but the Assembly has not yet scheduled it for a vote. Access these documents by clicking on these links to the Governor’s comments, and the new proposed language.
