Homeowner Association (HOA) Appeal Letter for Proposed Solar System (CA)
This appeal letter is designed for a solar customer who lives in a common-interest development who wants to appeal the decision of their Homeowners Association (HOA) or similar governing body that has denied or placed restrictions on their request to install solar. The letter contains an overview of the law applicable to homeowner rights to install solar in common-interest developments. It is drafted for use under California law, including the California Solar Rights Act. Both contractors and homeowners have found this letter to be successful in educating HOAs and overcoming objections to solar system installation requests. The letter can be customized and sent by either the solar contractor or homeowner, as desired.
