The issue of whether South Carolina HOAs (with respect to Board Meetings) are subject to the “open meeting law” is an often-asked question. Following is an opinion on the issue, along with advice provided by one of our Chapter’s prominent HOA attorneys:
South Carolina does not have a statute which addresses Homeowner Associations of single family lots. There is a statute which addresses condominiums known as the Horizontal! Property Regime Act References are made in this Act to the to the contents of the Bylaws as to the administration of condo regimes but they are broad and genera! statements without much detail The subject of “open meetings” is not addressed.
