Ensuring that you are on top of your HOA’s covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs) is a homeowner’s responsibility. Even if you went over the rules when you first moved into the community, there is no better time than now to brush up on your community guidelines.
CC&Rs are essentially the building blocks of what keeps the association running smoothly. The association regulations and rules are legally binding, and each homeowner must agree they complete the purchase of their property. Owners are responsible for informing tenants should their property be for rental purposes.
CC&Rs include stipulations on assessments, building design, and additions, and the governance of the association.
Avoid Accidental Violations
All residents need to understand these CC&Rs, so they don’t unintentionally violate them. Even inadvertent violations can result in hefty fines and potential lawsuits.
Though seemingly arbitrary, the CC&Rs are legally enforceable. They are designed to keep to keep residents treated equally and to sustain the association and community.
