Association's Right of Entry into an Owner’s Unit

A community association's right of entry into an owner’s unit is a necessary power in order to correct violations of covenants and to facilitate the repair and maintenance of the common areas. In the absence of state statutes that mandate such power to the association, it is incumbent on the association, especially associations that govern condominium projects, to have appropriate provisions in its governing documents that authorize the association to enter an owner's lot or unit for specified purposes.
