I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

A 5407 certification should have been filed with the county when the HOA was formed. If this is an association that's been around for many years, check the old records. You can also go to the county recorder's office to get a copy of the original documents. If the association has an attorney, call them - they should have copies of all documents prepared and filed.

If that was never done, here is an example of the certification statement, which your board can use to create one for your association.
