Q: Does this law apply to reinstated HOA? We had our HOA reinstated with no vote by a self elected board after 7 years.

HOA was dissolved in 2013. Now new self elected president wishes to enact rules. Most of neighborhood does not know HOA was reinstated. It was revealed only on an nextdoor web app. Question is in reference to RS 12.1-1444

A: I would advise that one first looks at the covenants and restrictions of the subdivision and see whether or not a HOA was initially discussed. If there is no mandatory HOA, then I would think the property owners would not be subject to the HOA. Further, you may want to consider consulting/hiring a attorney with experience in subdivision/HOAs to further review this.
