NO TENANT VOTING RIGHTS

QUESTION: If an owner rents out his unit, does the tenant receive voting rights or is it still the homeowner?

ANSWER
: Only the person on title to the property has voting rights. Tenants do not have a right to vote in membership elections nor can they be given power to vote by proxy since proxyholders are limited to members. (Civ. Code §5130.) Depending on your bylaws, a tenant could, however, be elected to the board and have voting rights as a director.
