Homeowner Association Agreement
This is a big CYA document. If the HOA does something drastic like booting the tenant’s car, disconnect the water, sue the tenant for rent because the owner hasn’t paid his dues or threatened to evict the tenant you need to be protected from litigation. The owner will ignore the HOA to get it leased and you’ll deal with the battles when the HOA wakes up to the reality that there is a new tenant in the community. You want the tenant holding you harmless when the HOA can’t open the pool or tennis courts because not enough owners have paid their dues. You need to protect yourself against the possibility of being sued for constructive eviction, wrongful dispossessory, loss of quiet enjoyment or harassment by the HOA. Tenants want to blame the property manager for everything no matter whose fault it is. If the owner fails to keep current with the HOA it can create chaos between you and the tenant so prevent it with this document and protect yourself.
