Why Your HOA Cannot Restrict Access to the 2020 Census

Why Your HOA Cannot Restrict Access to the 2020 Census

HOA | Condo Legal, HOA | Condo Homeowner Responsibilities & Education, HOA | Condo Other

Many HOA and Condo associations implement restricted access measures to help ensure the safety and security of their homeowners and community property. These measures, such as gated entries, closed-circuit cameras, and even security officers, are all in place to prohibit unwanted solicitors or intruders from disturbing your community's residents. It's important to know however, that the 2020 Census is currently underway and although your members may feel that they would rather not be bothered by Census representatives, denying entry to these representatives is actually illegal and can put your community at a disadvantage.
