The act of altering a governing document. With some exceptions, the amendment of CC&Rs and bylaws requires a member vote, while the board has the authority to amend rules. The percentages of member consent required for amendment are normally set forth in the governing documents themselves. Occasionally the consent of persons or entities other than the members (e.g., lenders) is required as well. The Davis-Stirling Act also contains a procedure for application to the Superior Court for approval of a proposed CC&R amendment when sufficient owner consents cannot be obtained. (Civ. Code §4275)
