QUESTION: Is there anything prohibiting an association from giving meeting minutes to renters? Is it a good or bad idea?

ANSWER: 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 If a renter becomes disruptive, the courtesy of providing minutes can be withdrawn.

Renter Directors. Some 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.
