116. Our HOA Board circulated new rules that are not in our governing documents, can they do that?

 “Unless otherwise provided in the governing documents” your Board of Directors has the authority using  reasonableness to establish policy, rules, guidelines and most likely procedures within the governing documents.

For example, lets say that your Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions specifically state all homes must have a driveway.

Ask yourself:
Does a required driveway include the length or width of the driveway?

Does a required driveway material include cement or blacktop or perhaps gravel?
