I am an officer on the Board of Directors of Edgewood Mtn. II HOA. We are trying to refine our C,C&Rs and other governing documents so we can clarify a common practice (last 30 plus years) whereby each individual homeowner or two homeowners adjacent to this small common area assumed responsibility for care and maintenance. This has been a practice without major disputes; however, we see the potential for disputes, and would like to establish a fair and reasonable solution. Thank you. Barrie
Thank you. I sort of had the impression that we would not find much that explicitly deals with this. Your search of Westlaw sources adds to the information I have been able to gather. I understand what you have told me. I thank you for running this down as far as you could. Much appreciated!
