San Francisco Assessor Joaquín Torres welcomes Housing and Economic Rights Advocates to provide an overview of the function of Homeowners Associations (HOAs) and how to overcome the challenges of being part of one.  

Gain a better understanding of the role of HOA covenants, bylaws and the board. The mismanagement of an HOA can lead to excessive costs and/or wrongful foreclosure on homeowners, particularly older adults or people with disabilities. Learn about your legal rights and how to avoid common challenges of being part of an HOA.

Housing and Economic Rights Advocates is a California statewide, not-for-profit legal service and advocacy organization dedicated to helping Californians — particularly those most vulnerable — build a safe, sound financial future, free of discrimination and economic abuses in all aspects of household financial concerns.
