HOA Rental Restrictions Laws and Best Practices

Homeowner associations may have a number of reasons for imposing leasing restrictions, which can have many benefits, but should understand the laws and management that these restrictions require.

§4740 - Rental or Leasing Restrictions

  1. An owner of a separate interest in a common interest development shall not be subject to a provision in a governing document or an amendment to a governing document that prohibits the rental or leasing of any of the separate interests in that common interest development to a renter, lessee, or tenant unless that governing document, or amendment thereto, was effective prior to the date the owner acquired title to his or her separate interest.
