Landlord Responsibilities in Homeowners Associations

  • Inform Tenants of HOA Rules- One of the responsibilities most homeowners associations will expect you to fulfill as a landlord is to inform your tenants of the association’s rules and restrictions. You will typically be required to provide a tenant with copies of your association’s policy before they move in, and to include those rules as part of the rental agreement that tenants must sign–this agreement is legally binding and will make sure that the rules are enforceable.
