Help Members Inform Renters About Facts of Association Life
Community associations often face difficulties when members lease their units to renters. Many renters who come to live at an association have lived only in rental buildings before, so they don’t really understand how associations operate. For example, they don’t understand that members in community associations own their own units, and therefore rely on each other to cooperate and follow the association’s rules. Or they don’t understand that they too are required to follow the association’s rules, bylaws, and restrictive covenants.
