Hi! My name is Richard & I will be helping you today! It will take me a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
Her actions would lead me believer that if she turns over the history and bank accounts, you're going to find some kind of malfeasance on her part. But, she's not going to be able to avoid this. Send her a letter by certified mail demanding that she turn everything over to the HOA within a specified short period of period. Inform her that if she fails to do so, you will have no choice but to file suit asking a court not only to order the records turned over, but also to award the HOA actual and punitive damages due to her intentional misconduct. Also, let her know that due to her behavior, the HOA will be auditing the books and if there has been any misappropriation of funds, the HOA will be pursuing both civil and criminal action. The letter usually does the trick. :)

Thanks for following up and you're very welcome. First, let me apologize to you for my delay in responding. I was traveling today and was on a plane until now. I appreciate your patience and I'm so sorry for any inconvenience. If she will not sign it, then have it delivered it to her by independent courier. Even if she doesn't accept it, the courier can leave it there and you will have independent verification it was delivered and when.
