BAN ON ANONYMOUS MATERIALS, EMAILS, LETTERS, FLYERS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND FINES FOR VIOLATIONS
June 29, 2019
California Civil Code allows owners to distribute or circulate materials “in a reasonable manner.” The reasonableness standard allows HOAs to adopt rules and policies regarding the dissemination of any materials, emails, letters, etc., and that includes a requirement that anyone disseminating materials, letters, emails etc., must identify themselves on the materials, emails, letters, etc., and cannot disseminate any materials, emails, letters, etc anonymously.
Policy 113 prohibits any person or group of persons from disseminating any materials, emails, letters, etc., without identifying themselves on the materials, emails, letters, etc.
Anonymous materials, emails, letters etc., are not allowed.
If any person or group of persons disseminates any materials, emails, letters etc. anonymously in violation of Policy 113, a fine of $50 per recipient may be assessed, after a hearing, for each material, email, letter etc, that is anonymously disseminated, but in an amount not to exceed $1,000 per material, email, letter, etc.
