HOA – Condo Director & Owner Training §5400

Civil Code §5400 asks the Department of Real Estate to create an ONLINE training course for HOA directors.   This has not been done, so we are doing it here.  Please send us any suggestions,  or just put them in the comments section on each page.

There isn’t a whole lot of training for the Condo Davis Stirling act, however Davis Stirling parallels and is based on the Brown Act (Brown Act for GuidanceDavis Stirling.com)  for public bodies, like City – Municipal Government, so a lot of our information, especially video, interpretation, Q & A, implementation has been used on this site.   One excellent example is the   1st Amendment Coalition Brown Act Primer

While Property Managers do have certifications they can study for, that does nothing for the Boards who are in control and cannot delegate most of their duties.   One certainly should not rely on a property manager for ANY legal questions.  It could well get them in legal trouble for the unlawful practise of law.

“Believe nothing merely because you have been told it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings — that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.”  – Buddha [Gautama Sidd] fear not law.com/

At this time, our site will concentrate on the Open Meeting Act, Financials & Reserve Studies.   Excellent Material for the remainder of topics in the Davis Stirling Common Interest Act is available on several Attorney Sponsored Websites and of course in the Law on the CA State Website  §4000 et seq.
