“That’s actually in the Declaration, not the Bylaws”
A rundown on where to find the information about who is in charge of what, how your Association runs, and how to change the bits that need tweaking
Your docs tell you everything about your association and are the only leg you have to stand on when it comes to enforcement and matters of responsibility.
They determine everything from which RCW’s you abide by, how much insurance you need, who can park where, and who gets to pay for that [snow plow, window cleaning, insurance deductible, dead tree, re-roof, etc] project. They’re changing a lot, hard to read, and should maybe be updated.
Come find out where to find the info you need, how to read about the thing you need, and then how to change it if it’s not the thing that fits your community anymore.
