Governing Documents: Who Leads?

Each Association has Governing Documents, which layout the operations for the community and any restrictions. But did you know there are different levels of hierarchy?
– Federal, State, and local ordinances always lead.
– Recorded plat, map, or plan.
– Declaration of Covenants or CC&R’s and any supplements to this document
– Articles of Incorporation
– Bylaws
– Rules and regulations
– General Resolutions
When creating rules and regulations or general resolutions, keep in mind they cannot conflict with any document that is higher on the pyramid!
