Assembly Bill
No. 2141

Introduced by Assembly Member Cunningham

February 12, 2018

An act to amend Section 5310 of the Civil Code, relating to common interest developments.


AB 2141, as introduced, Cunningham. Common interest developments: association: annual policy statement.
Existing law, the Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Act, defines and regulates common interest developments, which are managed by homeowners’ associations. Existing law requires the association to distribute an annual policy statement, containing specified information, to the members within 30 to 90 days before the end of the fiscal year.
This bill would change the time requirements for distribution of the annual policy statement to be within 31 to 91 days before the end of the fiscal year.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


 Section 5310 of the Civil Code is amended to read:

 (a) Within 30 31 to 90 91 days before the end of its fiscal year, the board shall distribute an annual policy statement that provides the members with information about association policies. The annual policy statement shall include all of the following information:
