The law is necessary to protect condo owners, said Nancy Stockton, president of the homeowners association at the Vallagio at Inverness in Arapahoe County. “I think (reforming the law) would be a license for builders to cut corners and be even more lax in their construction,” says Stockton. “The dispute process is already onerous.” The Denver Post (1/4)
