I recently asked the ADRE if they could either give me a ruling on (or point me to case law or a resource who could answer) this seemingly very simple question: ARE ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW COMMITTEE (ARC) DOCUMENTS TO BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW BY ANY ASSOCIATION MEMBER OR NOT? I got the following reply:
“The Department could not provide an answer regarding retention of records, we would suggest you contact a legal representative for an answer to your question.”
Is there any case law on this, or is there any free legal source or ombudsman who could answer this simple question?
I know your opinion on this — I’m looking for either case law, or some HOA atty that will give a clear, useful answer.
Thanks for any leads/tips.
