Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Collect all communication with the HOA, notices, CC&Rs, photos, and evidence relevant to your case. Keeping organized records strengthens your position.

In California, a homeowners association (HOA) doesn’t have the authority to evict a homeowner in the same manner as a landlord can with a tenant.

Yes, federal, state, and local laws are more important than HOA rules, and HOA rules should not go against or break these laws.

Generally, you can’t sue individual HOA board members, but the entire board, seen as a single entity, can be legally responsible in court. However, before suing an HOA, it’s a good idea to try other ways to resolve the issue.

Consider hiring an attorney if:

  • The dispute is complex or involves significant financial implications.
  • You feel your rights have been violated or you are being unfairly treated.
  • You need help with the legal process.
