This book represents a compilation of California and federal statutes and regulations. It contains the materials which the publishers believe will most likely assist community association managers and board members in the performance of their duties. It is not intended to include every statute or regulation that could possibly affect a community association, but rather those that are most frequently encountered.
The statutes contained in this book include amendments enacted through the end of calendar year 2015. This edition is intended for use during calendar year 2016. The California Legislature has the power to enact legislation during 2016 which will become effective immediately upon enactment. Therefore, it is always necessary to consult legal counsel before relying upon the language of any given statute.
This book is the result of many hours of diligent work by the attorneys and staff of Epsten Grinnell & Howell. A special thanks to attorneys Jay Hansen, Dea Franck, Sue Hawks McClintic and Nancy Sidoruk for their contribution and hours of research. This book is designed to provide information about California statutes, not legal advice to the reader. If you have a legal question or need legal advice, please consult your attorney.
