Do Homeowners have the right to look at all HOA documents

Question:

A member of our HOA asks if she has the right to see any actions the board has made against other members. Confidentiality is confusing here.
Do members have the right to look at all documents. Thanks

Shari

 

Answer:

Hi Shari,

This is actually a common question! In short, yes she has the right to see HOA Documents including:

  • Financial Reports
  • Annual Budget Report
  • Reserves Summary
  • Vendor Contracts
  • Board Meeting Agendas and Minutes
  • HOA Membership Lists
  • HOA Tax Returns
  • Governing Documents
  • HOA Rule Changes or Amendments
  • Plans for Capital Improvement Projects

 

We talk more about HOA Homeowner Rights on our blog here: https://www.hoamanagement.com/homeowners-rights-against-hoa/

In some cases, homeowners may first need to submit a written notice, as well as pay for copying and postage costs. HOA boards may refuse access to documents that are bound by attorney-client privilege and those with pending litigation. If this homeowner requesting has already threatened litigation an HOA Attorney would be recommended as a consultant.

We wish you and your community good luck and good health!
