With nearly 3,000 homeowners associations in Nevada, chances are, you live in community governed by an HOA. As a unit owner within a Common-Interest Community, it is important that you are familiar with your rights and responsibilities under Nevada law and the governing documents of your association. Education is the key to preventing problems before they occur. If you have already purchased a home in an HOA and haven't read your community's governing documents and CC&R's, do so now! If you are considering purchasing a home within an HOA, be sure you are familiar with the limitations and restrictions that may be placed on you by the association.
Office of the Ombusdman for Common-Interest Communities
The office of the Ombudsman for Owners in Common-Interest
Communities and Condominium Hotels was created by the State Legislature in 1997.
The office was created to assist homeowners and board members in common
interest communities to better understand their rights and obligations under
the law and their governing documents. The Ombudsman's office provides education, informal mediation regarding governing documents as well as investigation of disputes.
