There are two main angles of non-owner access that are frequently of concern. The first is the right of the HOA to access a unit. The second is the right of one owner to access the property of another property owner. Regarding the former, CC&R’s will often grant the right of access to an owners property for the purposes of fulfilling the HOA’s duties. The exact level of access varies by CC&R. Usually advance notice or pre-existing permission is a condition of access. Regarding the latter, neighbor’s access to each others property is generally a condition of the CC&R’s. This is most common in relation to property maintenance and repairs and usually requires advance notice or pre-existing permission.
