What are the Governing Documents of an Association?
Owners Associations derive their basic legal authority for their existence, activities, and actions from state statutes (laws) and certain legal documents:
What are the Articles of Incorporation?
What are Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CCRs)?
The underlying document of an owners association, apart from state law, is the Declaration, also referred to as Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CCRs). The Declaration is the constitutional law of the association. The Declaration defines the limits and inclusions of ownership for the owners and the association. As a legal entity the association is better prepared to pursue certain business needs, such as entering contracts, raising funds, filing liens, and collecting fees in a foreclosure.
The Declaration may contain:
What are By-Laws?
The Declaration forms the constitutional foundation of the association; By-Laws define the laws and operating procedures of the association. By-Laws detail the framework for governing the association that is authorized in the Declaration. They address the association's structure, the Board, the Officers, definition of a quorum, ability to enter into contracts, etc. By-Laws provide reliable guidance for Board Members at Meetings in addition to:
What are Rules & Regulations?
Rules and regulations are the operational and behavioral laws that apply directly to association residents and their guests. They state acceptable and/or unacceptable conduct for all Owners, their guests, visitors and renters. Rules and Regulations may generate conflict between the Board and the owner(s) since they may provide restrictions regarding noise, pets, use of the property or common areas, and fining procedures, however, good rules serve the interests of the entire association and protect the common areas.
