Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
CA Civil Code 5200-5240 give an owner the right to inspect association records and none of the statutes exclude reports of repairs or inspections of units. See: http://www.calassoc-hoa.com/Homeowners-Association/Documents-Forms/Access-to-Association-Records.aspx
If they are refusing to let you see the records, you can file a complaint with the attorney general's office and you could also sue them for the report and failure to produce documents.
