How Does An HOA Enforce CC&Rs?
The operations of your homeowners association are based on the covenants, conditions and restrictions, or CC&Rs, of your community. Below is a breakdown on each:
- Covenants: Promises on the part of all members
- Conditions: Conditions to membership in good standing
- Restrictions: Rules about property use
CC&R enforcement is a key part of an HOA’s responsibility to its members. The board of directors has both a contractual and fiduciary duty to enforce the CC&Rs. But how does a board gain compliance, while protecting itself from potential claims from violating owners or impacted members. The board must adopt policies and procedures to enforce the governing documents in a uniform manner that complies with the law and treats all homeowners fairly, and must further make and document enforcement decisions in a manner which elicits and preserves the protections of the business judgment rule. For effective enforcement and for the well-being of your community, it is best to consult with the experienced lawyers at our firm in Southern California.
