Common interest developments: elections.


The Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Act provides for the creation and regulation of common interest developments. Under existing law, a common interest development is managed by an association pursuant to the provisions of the governing documents of the development. Existing law imposes specified requirements with respect to elections for the board of directors of an association. Existing law provides that, upon a finding that specified election procedures, or the adoption of and adherence to certain rules, were not followed, a court may void any results of the election. This bill would provide that, if a court voids any results of an election for one or more board members under the above provisions, the court shall not invalidate a decision of the board that was reached after the board was seated pursuant to that election unless the court finds that the action of the board was contrary to law or the governing documents.
