#SocialCurrentSee : #Davis-Stirling



On multiple occasions in our common interest development (aka HOA) in the Inland Empire of Southern California (Trilogy Glen Ivy) we have been informed and have observed that the attorneys for the HOA are not that at all.  That is to say the attorneys, by their own declaration, have said they "only represent the board of directors" (BOD) and not the homeowners, titleholders who pay their bills.

As strange as it seems, that peculiar relationship plays out, at times, in an adverse way with homeowners because the law and practice of HOA governance in 2016 does not allow homeowners to have legal counsel present at general (open) meetings of the board.  Of course, there are precious few instances when having private counsel at board meetings is necessary, but when it is, the practice is not now allowed.

What's more, several years ago, our HOA BOD discontinued the practice of having legal counsel present at every general meeting.  Now, those attorneys only attend meetings when some controversial decision needs the defense of counsel in the presence of homeowners.

If you read the #SocialCurrentSee that follows, you can see that one California legislator has introduced a bill that will allow this practice to change.  Not surprising is the fact that the HOA attorney lobby is strongly against the bill.

A 'moniker' for the 'social current see' about common interest developments, aka HOAs, or homeowner associations, also property owner associations (POAs). These communities, while private governments, function much like cities with more than 9 million residents in these localities in California. As such, ALTACITIES, "alternate cities," are larger than the combined populations of the four largest cities in the state, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco.
