HB17-1095 - Service Of Process To Secured Dwellings

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning the service of process to individuals who live in secured residential communities.

The bill allows a licensed private investigator to enter a common interest community for a reasonable period of time for the sole purpose of serving process after he or she presents a copy of his or her private investigator's license and a copy of the documents to be served. A licensed private investigator who is allowed access to a common interest community to serve process shall not use such access to perform any investigative activities. A common interest community that is not staffed shall adopt and implement a procedure for allowing legitimate service of process to residents.

An HOA, a community association manager of a common interest community, or a landlord of a residential premises is immune from civil liability for any damages caused by a process server who enters the community or premises to serve process to a resident unless such damages are at least partially attributable to a negligent act or omission by the HOA, community association manager, or landlord.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
