property management company; email address; a certification that all Board members read their own HOA
governing documents and the State HOA Office's most current public presentation; and transmit to the
Office copies of all official documents required by DORA to be provided home buyers. The contract to Buy
and Sell Real Estate lists these documents.

unique and extraordinary with the sale of a home and not previously paid for with HOA dues.
