: Is there anything prohibiting an association from giving meeting minutes to renters? Is it a good or bad idea?
There is nothing in the Davis-Stirling Act that either prohibits
renters from or entitles them to receiving minutes (or any other HOA
records). I see no harm in providing minutes to renters. As residents,
renters may have an interest in participating in the affairs of the
association and want to contribute
by joining a committee. If a renter becomes disruptive, the
courtesy of providing minutes can be withdrawn.
associations have no requirement that directors be members of the
association. In those situations, renters can be elected to the board of
directors. Once elected, they would be entitled to the minutes, books
and records of the association as would any other director.
