Homeowners associations, or HOAs, market, manage and sell properties within a residential subdivision, condominium or townhome project. These organizations are governed by various documents including Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, and the Board of Directors’ Resolutions. Arizona law regulates various aspects of HOA operations, including setting standards for formation, alteration, operation and control.
One of the primary roles of an HOA is to enforce the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, or CC&Rs, which control the use, appearance and maintenance of the properties which they govern. Homeowners who are bound by the CC&Rs may be subject to fines or other penalties for failure to comply. Homeowners also have certain rights to enforce the CC&Rs as well as to participate in the amendment process. Developers and homeowners each may require assistance when facing the moment the developer relinquishes control of a project to the owners.
