At the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Rosedale Master Association, the Rosedale Homeowners Association approved changes to the Master Association’s CC&Rs that stipulated restrictions and requirements for leasing one’s home. The following is a summary these changes and a checklist for homeowners who are considering leasing their home.

Homeowners are prohibited from entering a lease which has a period of less than sixty (60) consecutive days.

Assessments - monies owed to the Association by the Homeowner - must be paid in full before the Homeowner Application may be submitted for consideration.
Only the Homeowner is authorized to complete the Homeowner Application.
No Unit may be used for any purpose other than as a single-family residence. Units may not be sub-leased at any time.
Should a renter move into a Unit without the approval of the Association, the Association has the right to evict the renter(s)/guest(s) and the Unit Owner will be liable for all costs pertaining to the eviction process including attorney's fee.

If a homeowner requests to expedite, the MHOA will do its best to accommodate his or her need. If the renter comes from outside the US, more time might be required.
