One wonders why SB 323 revised the law in this manner given that it also revised Civil Code section 5110(d) to provide that inspectors must perform their duties "in a manner that protects the interest of all members of the association." Section 5120(b)'s duty of notification is non-delegable. Usurping that duty is not the role of a fiduciary, much less if that usurpation increases the members' exposure to costly legal liability.
For boards and inspectors who do comply with Section 5120(b)'s notification requirement, Section 5145(a)'s new inspector-notification prong will not occur. As such, absent a direct violation of Section 5120(b) itself, the sole statute of limitation for all other election claims appears to remain one year from accrual.
