HOAs are generally regulated by Arizona state law with regard to how they can operate, though there are some federal regulations that apply to HOAs in the same ways they apply to certain business entities. The main statutes that apply to HOAs in Arizona are found in Title 33 of the Arizona Revised Statutes that cover property law. Chapter 18 specifically focuses on HOA dwelling actions.

Here’s a quick overview of some of the statutes you’ll find in this section of the state code:

  • Conditions of HOA dwelling actions:
    Under this section, you’ll find an overview of the conditions that must be met before an HOA is legally allowed to file an HOA dwelling action. Some of these conditions include meeting requirements, providing the proper notice and giving full disclosure of all relief granted. Also in the section are overviews of some of the procedural requirements related to how these dwelling actions must be carried out, including notice requirements and statutes of limitation for such actions.
  • Definitions:
    This section contains a thorough list of legal definitions of terms often used by HOAs in conducting their operations. Some of these terms include “good faith,” “dwelling,“ “community documents,” “homeowners association,” “homeowners association dwelling actions” and “seller.” These terms can be used in a variety of manners, so having the actual definitions legally associated with those terms is good so you can be as precise as possible when taking any type of action with your HOA.
  • Applicability:
    This section provides information about some of the types of actions that are not subject to the dwelling action rules for HOAs.

Depending on the types of issues you’re dealing with within your HOA, you might also have to refer to other Arizona Revised Statutes to help you navigate those issues. This HOA Statutes Search Engine includes those other statutes, so you have a single location to get all of the information you need for the issues that could arise with your HOA.
