*Recent changes in California law pertaining to the election process of community associations require an Inspector of Elections, distribution of the Request for Candidates and Candidate Information Sheets, and Ballot packages.

If an association wants to make arrangements for an individual owner to assume the maintenance obligation of an owner's property, we prepare agreements detailing the owner's and association's responsibilities.
