Understanding Your Rights as a Homeowner in an HOA: Insights from an Experienced HOA Lawyer

By: LS Carlson Law May 18th, 2023

As a homeowner in a homeowner association (HOA), it's important to understand your rights and responsibilities. HOAs have rules and regulations that govern how properties are maintained, and failure to comply with these rules can result in fines or other penalties. But as a homeowner, you also have legal rights. Here's what you need to know about your rights as a homeowner in an HOA.

The Right to Vote
One of the most important rights that homeowners have in an HOA is the right to vote. Homeowners have the right to vote on issues that affect the community, such as changes to the rules and regulations or the election of board members. This means that homeowners have a say in how the community is run, and can work together to make sure that the community meets their needs.

The Right to Review Records
Homeowners also have the right to review the HOA's financial records and other documents. This can help homeowners understand how the HOA is spending their money and ensure that the HOA is acting in their best interest. Further, Homeowners have the right to review the minutes from board meetings, which can help them stay informed about issues that impact the community.

The Right to Due Process
As a homeowner, you also have the right to due process. This means that the HOA cannot take action against you without following proper procedures and providing you with adequate notice and an opportunity to be heard. For example, if the HOA wants to fine you for a violation of the rules, they must provide you with notice of the violation and an opportunity to dispute the fine before taking any action.
