Sometimes owners mix requests for information with requests for records. The Davis-Stirling Act provides for an owner's limited right to review books and records
but does not create an obligation that associations compile information.
For example, if an owner were to request a list of all parking violations for the past three years, the association is not required to comb through its files and create a list. If a list already exists, the association should produce it, minus any personal information that might be in the document. If no such document exists, the association is not required to create one.
