Question:

Can we allow a renter to serve on the board?

Answer:

You need to review the qualification of directors section of association’s by-laws. Some by-laws specifically require that a director must be an owner of a home. If your association has such a qualification, then a renter cannot serve on the board. However, some by-laws do not contain this qualification in which case a renter, who complies with all of the other qualifications for a director, may serve on the board.
