Some neighborhoods or condominium complexes have casual HOA's/COA’s and some have
very formal HOA's/COA’s. Home or condo owners associations are created by builders and
developers to help ensure that all owners or their tenants living in a particular neighborhood will
take care and pride in their property. The HOA 's/COA’s purpose is to monitor the neighborhood
or complex and make sure that everybody is keeping their yards clean, removing trash cans from
the curbs, not setting up business in their homes, not parking on the sidewalks or having loud and
annoying parties. These are just some examples of items that an HOA/COA tries to control.

want an entire list of rules you can usually download the CC & R's/rules from the HOA/COA
To do their job, an HOA/COA employee or contractor drives throughout the
neighborhood/complex several times a month looking for infractions. Once they find a home that
is in violation of the HOA/COA rules, they send out a letter of violation to the owner. This letter
is usually followed up with a second letter within ten days, if the problem has not been addressed
As the tenant living in a home where there is an active HOA/COA, you are responsible for any
violation that occurs at your rental property.
Once the HOA/COA informs the homeowner, Pinon will send you a written notice to fix the
problem. If the problem is not fixed within seven to ten days, the HOA/COA will assess the
owner a fine. These fines can range between $50 and $250. Once you have been notified and if
you have not fixed the problem, you the tenant will be responsible for paying this fine.
On our web site at the navigation button labeled HOA/COA, you can download the Covenant
Conditions and Rules (CC & R's) for your respective neighborhood. Many of these documents
will print out between 40 - 75 pages. Also we have provided you contact numbers in case you
want to dispute the violation and want to call the HOA/COA yourself.
