This manual has been generated to acquaint Homeowners and Residents with the Rules and Regulations under which Cahuenga Hills Tennis Condominiums are governed. We recommend you review it carefully and keep it on hand for future reference and guidance.
Cahuenga Hills Tennis Condominiums are governed by the “Declarations of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions and Grants and Reservations of Easements” (CC&Rs) approved by the Real Estate Commissioner of the State of California, including the Articles of Incorporation and By-laws of the Condominium Association. These documents contain the basic rules and regulations for living at Cahuenga Hills Tennis Condominiums to which you agreed when you became a Homeowner.
In accordance with the CC&Rs, Cahuenga Hills is operated by a Homeowners Association, to which each Homeowner automatically belongs. It must be
remembered that Cahuenga Hills is NOT an apartment complex. There is no
“Landlord” to “take care of things.” Each Homeowner is responsible for the care and cost of maintaining his unit. All Homeowners, jointly, are
responsible for the care and all costs of maintaining and operating the common
areas. Through your membership in the Homeowners Association, you delegate this joint responsibility to an elected Board of Directors and the Management and Staff employed by the Homeowners Association. The quality and quantity of services and facilities at Cahuenga Hills depend entirely upon what you and your fellow Homeowners want and are willing to pay for.
The Homeowners Association reserves the right to modify or change any of the services, facilities or rules and regulations as described herein.
1.02 APPLICABILITY AND DEFINITIONS

the provisions, meaning and intent of the CC&Rs and By-Laws and supplement them.

herein shall mean the Cahuenga Hills Tennis Condominium Association.

The Condominium Association employs a Manager who is responsible for implementing the policies established by the Board of Directors, for the day-to-day operations of the Condominium, and for the direction of employees of the Association. The Manager has an office. During regular business hours, Homeowners may contact the Manager’s Office (323-851-5211) or the Management Company (818-907-6622). Evenings or weekends, or in case of emergency, Homeowners may contact the Association Emergency Contact Person (323-404-4827) or the Board of Directors (323-445-6364).
The Condominium Association also employs various other personnel, either directly or indirectly, through its contracted services. All employees are hired and paid with the understanding that they are not to expect or solicit tips in any manner. They are also instructed not to render any additional or personal services during paid working hours to individuals who may wish to tip them for such extra attention. Employees are authorized to perform personal services for Homeowners after hours or on whatever arrangements are made with the Homeowners.
