It is a non-profit corporation registered with the State and managed by a duly elected Board of Directors. Its purpose is to maintain all common areas and to govern the community in accordance with the provision of the legal documents.
The Board of Directors are elected by the Association, or as otherwise specified in the bylaws. They are a governing body that is required to oversee the associations business.
The Bylaws are the guidelines for the operation of the non-profit corporation. The Bylaws define the duties of the offices of the Board of Directors, the terms of the Directors, the membership's voting rights, required meetings and frequency of meetings, and the principal office of the association, as well as other specific items that are necessary to run the Association as a business.
Most associations have developed Rules and Regulations as provided for in the CC&R's and adopted by the Board of Directors. Rules are established to provide direction to the homeowners for common courtesies with regard to parking, vehicles, pets and pool use hours, etc. In addition, your Association will adopt Architectural Guidelines with procedures for submitting requests to make exterior changes to your home. Such changes may include patio covers, decks, landscaping, exterior color changes or extensive interior changes and additions. These rules and guidelines are set up to maintain the aesthetic value and integrity of the community on behalf of all owners, and hopefully protect the market value of your investment as well. Violations of these rules may result in action by the Board of Directors and a fine. In addition, if you proceed with an exterior improvement or change, without written approval of the Board of Directors, or Architectural Committee, as applicable, you will be required to remove or correct the alteration and/or be fined for the violation.

If residents cannot resolve a situation between themselves, then turn to your Association. Should you have a situation that does not appear to be resolved through neighborly means, and you are willing to actively participate in the enforcement provided by the Policies and Guidelines, you may complete a Violation form online. The Violation form may be found within the Owner and Renter section on this site. If the situation is deemed in violation of the Policies and Guidelines, the Board of Directors will institute the enforcement policy. Your continued assistance may be required.

The Maintenance Fee is the periodic amount due from each homeowner to cover the operating expenses of the common area and provide for reserve funds for replacement of common facilities in future years. Your Maintenance Fees are due on the first of the month. Coupons have been sent for Maintenance Fees as a reminder of the amount due.
There is no concrete answer to this. Typically the Civil Code provides for annual increases, but not to exceed 20 percent per year without the vote of the membership. The Board of Directors may approve an increased budget, increasing your Maintenance Fees up to this percentage in order to cover increased costs of operating and maintaining the common area and sufficient reserve funds.
The maintenance and management services incurred by the Association are dependent upon timely receipt of the Maintenance Fees due from each homeowner. Late payments will result in a late charge as Maintenance Fees are due on the first of the month. In addition, the CC&R's allows the Association to charge late charges and interest and proceed with a lien on your property, or foreclosure proceeding for nonpayment of Maintenance Fees.
