Edgewater Isle governing documents

CC&Rs are recorded with San Mateo County. Bylaws and Rules are not. Despite boards' assertions that CC&Rs must be updated to comply with California law, it is not so. California law always supersedes any CC&Rs or Bylaws.

NOTE: These documents are provided for informational purposes only. In situations in which the accuracy and reliability of the information is of paramount importance, readers are advised to obtain certified copies from the relevant association.

South proposes draconian amendment


The Edgewater Isle South Association sent out a mailing to owners with the Board's proposed updates to their 30-years-old CC & Rs and 20-years-old Bylaws.

Owners have been asked to approve a new article that would give the City of San Mateo “police power” over unspecified matters of the Association. This broad and undefined proposed amendment has potential to drag homeowners into a battle with the City of San Mateo over as-of-yet undefined matters and would leave the homeowner on the hook for the City's attorney fees.

Such a proposed amendment is only in the association attorneys' benefit (including Berding and Weil) as association attorneys have no incentive to resolve disputes while having every reason to prolong them (money).

All homeowners should reject the proposal as it is just another (potential) grab of homeowners' equity and in no way benefits owners, just the Association lawyers.



As an aside, why do the Edgewater Isle South Association and/or their attorneys Berding & Weil LLP believe that a “copyright” and a “no part of this document may be reproduced” clause is appropriate for a matter of public interest?
