Voting to Protect Views in Community Associations
Homeowners in California do not have an automatic right to the protection of the views from their home. Unless there are deed restrictions or restrictions in CC&Rs that protect a homeowner's views, they usually have no protection at all. Consequently, many homeowner associations are amending their CC&Rs in order to protect views which preserve and maximizes the value of those homes.
After an HOA attorney drafts an appropriate amendment, the proposed amendment. must be approved by a quorum of the membership using the two envelope, secret ballot process.
