CC&R Enforcement Procedures
Wednesday, June 21, 2017

In 2014, The Idaho Legislature adopted Senate Bill 1310 which placed limits on fines issued by property owners’ associations. The law, which became Idaho Code Section 55-115, placed fining requirements on associations.

Under the new regulation many associations, including Hidden Springs, lost the ability to impose fines for violations of an association’s CC&Rs unless the authority to impose the fine was clearly set forth in the CC&Rs.

Therefore, as of July 2014, the HSTA board could not adopt fines through a resolution or some other act short of a full scale amendment to the recorded CC&Rs.

Losing this ability has made it difficult to enforce CC&Rs in the neighborhood. In pursuit of a solution, HSTA consulted with a property attorney for legal guidance on enforcing our CC&Rs.  Read More.
