4. Should The Home Owners’ Protection Act be repealed?

The Home Owners’ Protection Act was enacted effective December 31, 1981. It had the effect of staying any applications for leave to commence or any actions started under the LCAA from December 31, 1981 to December 31, 1982. It also prohibited any action or applications for leave to commence being commenced in the same period. The Act covers very similar ground to the LCAA, but it was intended to be temporary legislation. Given that the time period for the protection offered under The Home Owners’ Protection Act has passed, it may no longer be necessary to have this Act “on the books.”
