Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

There is a specific HOA Open Meeting Law. An HOA can only meet in executive session for the following reasons:

– LEGAL: To hear, or to further consider, the advice of legal counsel;

– LAWSUITS: To discuss pending or potential litigation. This would include discussions regarding legal action to collect assessments; to enforce the CCRs; to preserve the CCRs against a homeowner’s lawsuit; third-party legal action (such as with contractors or insurance companies); and administrative actions;

– PERSONAL: Personal, health, or finance issues with respect to any individual member; and

– EMPLOYMENT: The performance, health, compensation, or complaints directed against any individual working for the association or working under the direction of the association.

The HOA cannot meet for any other reason in executive session. All meetings must be preceded by a notice. You can file a complaint at the following website: http://www.azre.gov/HOA/HOA.aspx

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
