It is with this challenge in mind that Community Associations Institute (CAI) developed Rights and Responsibilities for Better Communities. Rights and Responsibilities can serve as an important guidepost for all those involved in the community—board and committee members, community managers, homeowners and non-owner residents.

Homeowners Have the Right To:

  • A responsive and competent community association.
  • Honest, fair and respectful treatment by community leaders and managers.
  • Participate in governing the community association by attending meetings, serving on committees and standing for election.
  • Access appropriate association books and records.
  • Prudent expenditure of fees and other assessments.
  • Live in a community where the property is maintained according to established standards.
  • Fair treatment regarding financial and other association obligations, including the opportunity to discuss payment plans and options with the association before foreclosure is initiated.
  • Receive all documents that address rules and regulations governing the community association—if not prior to purchase and settlement by a real estate agent or attorney, then upon joining the community.
  • Appeal to appropriate community leaders those decisions affecting non-routine financial responsibilities or property rights.

Homeowners Have the Responsibility To:

  • Read and comply with the governing documents of the community.
  • Maintain their property according to established standards.
  • Treat association leaders honestly and with respect.
  • Vote in community elections and on other issues.
  • Pay association assessments and charges on time.
  • Contact association leaders or managers, if necessary, to discuss financial obligations and alternative payment arrangements.
  • Request reconsideration of material decisions that personally affect them.
  • Provide current contact information to association leaders or managers to help ensure they receive information from the community.
  • Ensure that those who reside on their property (e.g., tenants, relatives, friends) adhere to all rules and regulations.

So what do you think? Are there any that should be added to this list? Let us know below!
