: Our CC&Rs require that board
members be owners. The son of a member wants to run for the board. He has an
unrecorded quit claim deed (he claims it's unrecorded for tax reasons). Does this qualify
him to run for the board?
No, an unrecorded deed does not qualify him to serve on the board. People who walk around with "pocket deeds" (unrecorded deeds they carry in their pocket) usually do so for reasons other than taxes. If your non-member wants to run for the board, he needs to record the deed and become a member
