HOA Management FAQ's
Los Angeles HOA
A Homeowners’ Association (HOA) is a legal corporation that is organized and incorporated under the individual laws of your state. The Association is bounded by Articles of Incorporation that enable the association to implement certain powers of a corporation. By purchasing a home in the community or where the Homeowners’ Association is involved, you will automatically become a member of the association. The membership will remain so for as long as you own the home. Membership is not an option and is automatic for all owners. You will receive a copy of the association documents at the closing of the home, provided by the title company. As a property owner in Los Angeles and a member of a community association, you are required to pay dues, as well as accept the homeowners’ association rules and restrictions while maintaining the areas of your home that are your responsibility.
