The Board recently found out that a particular house is not owned by the current resident, but the resident is the cousin of the owner. We don't know if this resident pays a fee or "rents" the home from the legal owner. Because the resident is not the owner, could this person be considered a renter, even if they are a family member?

They are not an owner so thus not a HOA member. So whether or not they "rent" or not is irrelevant. The HOA goes after the member/owner. That person then goes to their resident whom lives there.

If we find that a owner is using an offsite mailing address, we will send them a form to update the current resident's information for emergency purposes. Some HOA's CCRs and/or Rules might require a copy of the signed lease as a condition.

Considered a renter for what purpose? Do you have rental limits or restrictions?

Relative or not, if both parties claim that resident is just a guest and not paying rent, it could be hard to prove otherwise, and trying to apply rental restrictions may not be on sound legal footing.

Are you on the Board, Carol? What is the Board's concern?
