Thank you for your answer. I have a followup question. The verbally stated rule that was instituted last month on restricting homeowner speech is not in writing, not in the CC&R's. The Board just announced the change at the September meeting and instituted it last night. So, under Section 4365 that you stated above, are you saying we can get 5% petition, have a special HOA meeting and ask for a vote to rescind the restriction on homeowner input? This 720 member HOA has been having Board Meeting monthly for 42 years under our current CC&R's without ever restricting homeowner voices in this manner. Help me understand.
Thank you for your answers to my question. I am disappointed that there is no easier way to address the situation with the Board, but I accept that it is what it is. I am satisfied that your assistance is worthy of the $40.00 charge but will not be adding any tip. Seems inappropriate to me to request a tip for legal assistance.
