questions & answers

Question: I live in an HOA that has a file within my account called "owner file". This file contains personal information related to my history in the community such as violation notices, aplications for changes, etc. I would like to know which area, if any, of state law covers the maintenance of this file which seems to be an invasion of privacy.

Answer: As a general rule, landlords and HOAs are permitted to collect and maintain such records. What they may not lawfully do is improperly use such records or share such records with others or allow them to be improperly used or shared with others. Doing so could be a criminal act under the Arizona Criminal Code (A.R.S. Title 13).
