Glen Laurel Homeowners
The HOA has been notified by our insurance carrier that they will not cover any COVID-19 related lawsuits. This means that if a resident or guest contracted the virus at the Glen Laurel pool and sued, the HOA would have to pay all lawyer fees and any judgement associated with the lawsuit.
A judgement against the HOA affects every homeowner and each resident would be financially responsible for any judgement. This could be in the form of a special assessment or on future yearly assessments.
Although there is a very slight chance of a lawsuit being filed, even a frivolous lawsuit will be expensive to fight. For these reasons the Board has decided NOT to open the pool this year. If legislation is passed granting HOAs immunity, which is being discussed at the state and federal levels, the Board will reconsider their decision.
