Hierarchy of HOA Laws in Washington

Question:

Which Washington State RCW(s) is a non-profit HOA, incorporated in 1970, accountable to? If both, and there is conflicting guidance in requirements, board management, voting, etc… which has precedence?

– Frederick

 

Answer:

Hi Frederick,

Both apply to homeowners associations if they are organized as nonprofits. Generally, RCW 64.38 Homeowners’ Associations takes precedence over RCW 24.03A Washington Nonprofit Corporation Act as the former applies specifically to HOAs. However, it is best to check with a lawyer.
