How Does A Homeowners Association Protect Itself Against Costly Lawsuits?

Orange County HOA LawyersOur vast understanding has given us the know-how to help your association protect your homeowners from preventable legal challenges and costly lawsuits.

One of the best ways to do this is to document the information involved with business decisions made by your board.

To do this, we introduce and work closely with homeowners associations to begin to use an easy-to-remember, simple process for board resolutions that we like to call the “Pass System.”

What Is The Pass System?

Experience has taught us that there are four essential elements to any board resolution. They are:

P – Purpose of the resolution

A – Authority for the resolution

S – Scope of the resolution

S – Specific occurrence requiring resolution

Why use the Pass System? When faced with allegations of improper conduct or failure to exercise proper business judgment, the documentation of these elements is a board’s best go-to for defending its decisions.

Our attorneys, committed to the education of boards, also offer a seminar on this topic.

Our firm offers these services as an annual retainer or by the hour. We have offices in Laguna Hills and San Diego for your convenience. Contact us today to set up an initial consultation. We can be reached in Laguna Hills at (949) 729-8002. If you prefer, send our attorneys an email.
