Covenants and bylaws
The Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) is the legal document that lays out the guidelines for the planned community. The CC&Rs are recorded in the county records in the county where the property is located and are legally binding. This means that when you purchase a lot or a home in a planned community, for example, you automatically become a member of the HOA. These are basically the rules of the neighborhood.
The POA, set up as a non-profit corporation, is an organization established to manage a private, planned community. Like other corporations, the POA is governed by a board of directors (who are elected by the members) and a set of rules called bylaws. The bylaws govern how the HOA operates and contain the information needed to run the POA as a business.
