What are the Governing Documents of an Association?
Owner associations derive their basic legal authority for their existence, activities, and actions from state statutes (laws) and certain legal documents:

  • Articles of Incorporation
  • Declaration or:
    • Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (aka CC&Rs or Covenants)
    • Declaration of Condominium
    • Master Deed
  • Bylaws
  • Rules & Regulations

What are the Articles of Incorporation?

This document:

  • Bring the corporation into existence
  • Define the basic purpose and powers of the corporation
  • Indicate there will be a board of directors and may, identify the initial board

What is the Declaration?
The underlying document of an owner association, apart from state law, is the Declaration. It may also be known as CC&Rs, Declaration of Condominium, or Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs). A Master Deed may be in place on some condominiums. 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 foreclosure.
The Declaration may contain:

  • Definitions of the physical elements of the property
  • The method for determining the share of interest in the common area for each property owner
  • A list of the responsibilities for the association and individual owners and permitted uses of common areas and individual units
  • Responsibilities for the care of the association and the common areas
  • Restrictions on the use or enjoyment of properties in the association and common areas

    What are Bylaws?
    The Declaration forms the constitutional foundation of the association; the Bylaws define the laws and operating procedures of the association. Bylaws detail the framework for governing the association that is authorized in the Declaration. They address the association's structure, the board, the officers, the definition of a quorum, the ability to enter into contracts, etc. Bylaws provide reliable guidance for board members at meetings in addition to:

    • Requirements of membership meetings
    • Voting rights of property owners
    • Procedures for electing the board of directors
    • Procedures for the board of directors to elect officers
    • General powers and duties of the board

    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 tenants. 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.
