While it was widely assumed to be so, a recent Ocean County trial court decision has held that claims under the Municipal Services Act are governed by the 6 year statute of limitations for contract claims.  This means that a community association seeking past municipal services reimbursements may only be entitled to those which have accrued within the last 6 years.  If your community association has not been receiving municipal services reimbursements or if you believe it has not been receiving all of the reimbursements for which it is entitled, you may have a limited time in which to formally pursue them. 

If you have any questions about the Municipal Services Act, please Stark & Stark’s Community Associations group.
