Requirements for your Reserve Study in California
California Civil Code requires that full reserve studies with an on-site inspection must be performed at least every 3 years for common interest developments (CID), such as Homeowner Associations.
In addition to that requirement, annual adjustments and updates to the reserve study must be completed every year and the information must be disclosed to the owners with the annual budget package. (This is a reserve study without an on-site inspection)
As of July 1st, 2005 there is a specific assessment and reserve funding disclosure summary form that must be included every year with the annual budget package.
This form has been updated in 2007 and now requires a percent funded projection for the next 5 years. (This calculation can not be done without a current reserve study)
Starting July 1st, 2009 California Civil Code requires that HOA’s adopt a reserve funding plan and that they include it in their annual budget along with their reserve study and reserve funding disclosure summary.
