WHEN READING GOVERNING DOCUMENTS REMEMBER TO CHECK THE RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR POSSIBLE UPDATES
Updated: Dec 12, 2021
Guidelines for Referring to Governing Documents and Rules
The Conditions, Covenants & Restrictions (CC&Rs) and Bylaws currently in use by OREHOA were adopted in 1999. Since then, some California Civil Code (CCC) section numbers have changed, language in some CCC sections has changed and new section numbers have been added often as a result of new legislation. Rather than re-write the CC&Rs or Bylaws every time there is a change, Code allows HOAs to create new rules that refer to these changes.
It can be misleading to read only the CC&Rs and Bylaws and assume that is the current language. Reference must also be made to the other rules on this website, primarily Rules and Regulations, Accessory Dwelling Units Rules, Election Rules and Architectural Committee Landscape Rules. These rules note which sections of CC&Rs or Bylaws have been changed or clarified.
