Home Owner Association

The Home Owner Association(HOA) is the governing body of a condominium association. The HOA's roles and responsibilities are delineated in the by-laws of the association. The scope of this responsibility varies from one association to another and may also be defined by local and state laws.

The original by-laws are usually written by the developer of the condominium complex. In most cases they can be modified by subsequent owners.

The HOA board is usually elected by the individual owners of the the units. The actual maintenance work can be carried out by the members or performed under contract with a management company.
