California courts host a continual flow of disputes between homeowners' associations and their tenants or others. Most condo and single-family residential developments utilize the HOA as a method to administer certain management functions that are common to the homes comprising the development. The state has passed a regiment of laws that govern how the association is to be formed and the general scope of its authority.
Despite the legal strictures, disputes regularly arise and generally comprise a separate body of case law in California jurisprudence. These scenarios are often repetitive nationwide. For example, in one recent incident in another state, a homeowners' association experienced a serious breach of contract with a private supplier of services. For some undisclosed reason, the private trash collector for the Park Pointe homeowners stopped collecting the trash.
