Pacifica, CA asked in Real Estate Law for California

Q: Hi, Our HOA has been inactive with no elected officials for about 10 years.

No elections. Yet the management company continues to collect dues and never give owners financial reports. Repairs are either not done or it takes forever. HOA has been suspended by the FTB till now. Management company had been suspended for about 10 years then now becomes active again. Management company used old data to file Statement of Information where officers information were outdated. HOA has no board of directors at this point. Recently the roof leaks into my unit and is causing continious damage at this point. What action should I take? Is there any government agencies I can complain to? Thank you.

A: Consult an attorney. HOA elections should be held and perhaps you want to run for office. Talk to other HOA members and get a sense of what the majority would like done. The new HOA board can hold the management company accountable, especially if they are acting without any true authority (might even be criminal).
