Rarely is the HOA information available before an offer is made.  I require all buyers to get an HOA document review.  If they do not agree to get that ... I do not agree to represent them.

Our MLS has HOA fees placed in the listing so buyers know how much the home will cost with the HOA dues before they write.  The deal allows for termination based on review of the preliminary title report and CC&R's, Bylaws. If a buyer wants to know about the HOA prior to offering, research can easily be done to provide these documents for the buyer's review, but rarely does this happen.

Name of HOA Yes. Monthly Fees and what they cover per MLS, Yes.

Otherwise: NO! The HOA disclosures are ordered by escrow and delivered directly to the buyer. You DO NOT want the liability of interpreting HOA documents.

As the buyer's agent I may not(likely not) have any yet alone all HOA information unless the listing agent orders/makes it available prior to offer submission. When discussing any HOA details I will cite the source of information:  HOA fees are $xxx.xx per month per the listing agent's remarks.   Even the number of units shown in the mls needs to be verified let alone any other details.      

As you know in California, our purchase agreement addresses this issue and this becomes part of that first discussion who may be considering a properyt within a HOA.

Only if there is something about the association that is pertinent to their needs.  I usually give the HOA information 14 days so if the buyer needs to get out of the contract, they are able to within that time frame.

Hi Hella - The annual dues are part of the listing, but we may also have covenants in our files, and if we do, we'll provide them pre-contract if the buyer wants them. The full HOA package is part of the title work that is usually provided about a week in.
