Several legal issues can arise between a home or condo owner and the association managing common and recreation areas. These generally involve disputes pertaining to the interpretation or application of the governing documents – the contract between the owner and the association regarding the respective responsibilities and liabilities of the owner and association. Some of the common issues and questions that arise are:
- Is a particular HOA expense or charge appropriate?
- Can an HOA impose a particular restriction on the use and enjoyment of property?
- What are the procedures to petition an HOA to take a particular action or modify its rules?
