I am the owner of a condominium. The HOA has been knocking

Customer Question

I am the owner of a condominium. The HOA has been knocking on my tenants door without prior notice to me or them and accessing my deck and patio via ladder to address a leak in the unit below me. When I asked to be warned, this was his response
"The HOA has right of access to all units, and patios."
I don't believe this to be true. Am I right. Condominiums are private residences, right?

Possibly. But a general contractor stated the leak is probably coming from under my patio/deck. Now the HOA manager has his brother looking into the situation and showing up without notice.

Thank you for your follow up.Did you review your HOA / Condo Association rules and whether the rules allow HOA / COA to access condo unit in case of some type of repair / leak issue?
