Homeowners associations sometimes need to amend their covenants, conditions and restrictions ("CC&Rs"), bylaws, rules, map, or other governing documents to recognize construction of garages, decks or room additions, or to reflect changes adopted by the owners.  Occasionally replacing older condominium documents is necessary to adhere to current law and make it easier to sell and refinance their properties.  This will also minimize the likelihood of owner disputes and operational problems due to old and outdated documents.



We offer a fixed-fee program for updating, improving and replacing old CC&Rs.  Associations replace their governing documents because the old documents have become outdated, hard to understand and use or do not effectively deal with the real problems of the association. The governing documents homeowners’ associations called the covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs), bylaws and rules, need regular updating or revision to accommodate changing circumstances, remove obsolete provisions and to comply with the latest laws. We have CC&Rs written in "Plain English" that we custom tailor to you association which are clear and easy to follow.



Learn how CC&Rs and Bylaws for smaller condo HOAs are different, and why small homeowner associations should periodically update their documents.  We can show you how to start and run small condominium homeowners’ associations, including forming the HOA, owner meetings, budgeting, establishment and collection of HOA dues, record keeping, taxes and governmental filings.
