Even though Home Owner’s Associations (HOAs) are mostly autonomous, they are subject to specific statutes outlining HOA powers. These statutes provide the framework for how HOAs are created, what they can do, and how they are run. They prescribe certain rights for homeowners. They also provide mechanisms by which homeowners can ensure the HOA is managed with the community’s best interest in mind, that business is conducted in a public and transparent fashion, and that board elections are properly conducted.
Failure to abide by the HOA rules can result in negative consequences to the homeowner. However, failure to comply with statutes that govern HOAs can result in negative consequences to the HOA and every member. HOAs must efficiently and consistently or the entire community could suffer. Homeowners will be affected financially, aesthetically and with a decrease in property values.
