CC&R Enforcement Procedures
Monday, February 5, 2018

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. Going forward, the CC&R process will be enforced as follows:

  • The HSTA will conduct inspections of the property.
  • Instances of non-compliance will be documented and logged. 
  • A level one Covenant Infraction will be delivered to the property or sent via regular mail or email. Staff may attempt a follow-up phone call or email if such contact information is up-to-date with the HSTA.
