Q: What does IC 55-3206(1) mean?
The HOA Board thinks that the HOA Board authority to make any rule if the CC&R says they can make rules. I think it means that the rule they are trying to enforce has to be in the CC&R
A: I am not licensed in your state but I read Idaho Code IC 55-3206(1) and I believe, in essence, it says that if someone is part of a homeowner's association (HOA) in Idaho the HOA cannot fine them unless their ability to do so is clearly written into the Covenants & Restrictions. And, if the HOA wants to fine someone, they need to schedule a vote at least a month away - and more than half of the members must agree. Notice of that meeting needs to be served upon the individual personally or by certified mail.
