I wanted to provide some information that you may not know about Homeowner Associations.
Community Association Fundamentals
Even though you live in an association, you might be surprised how many of our neighbors—owners and renters alike—don’t really understand the fundamental nature of common-interest communities. And we know that many others, including the media and government officials, lack a true understanding of the community association (or condominium) concept.
Here are the 10 basic principles that answer three essential questions: What is the basic function of a community association? What are the essential obligations and expectations of homeowners? What are the core principles that should guide association leaders?
We’re confident you’ll recognize your community while reading these principles.
- Associations ensure that the collective rights and interests of homeowners are respected and preserved.
- Associations are the most local form of representative democracy, with leaders elected by their neighbors to govern in the best interest of all residents.
- Associations provide services and amenities to residents, protect property values and meet the established expectations of homeowners.
- Associations succeed when they cultivate a true sense of community, active homeowner involvement and a culture of building consensus.
- Association homeowners have the right to elect their community leaders and to use the democratic process to determine the policies that will protect their investments.
- Association homeowners choose where to live and accept a contractual responsibility to abide by established policies and meet their financial obligations to the association.
- Association leaders protect the community’s financial health by using established management practices and sound business principles.
- Association leaders have a legal and ethical obligation to adhere to the association’s governing documents and abide by all applicable laws.
- Association leaders seek an effective balance between the preferences of individual residents and the collective rights of homeowners.
- Association leaders and residents should be reasonable, flexible and open to the possibility—and benefits—of compromise.

The street lights in Tustin Meadows are not Maintained by the Association. SoCal Edison has been maintaining the lights and has advised Management that they will no longer do so. The City of Tustin will be responsible for this moving forward. If you notice a street light is burned out, flickering or stays on during the day, please contact the City of Tustin Public Works Department.
Public Works department (714) 573-3350
Please provide the light pole number if you can read it, nearest address and cross street to help them locate the light.
Thank you for you continued support in keeping your community bright!
I have created this section to answer some of the most asked questions. The Association has sent hundreds of letters out for painting and so you are not alone if you received one. The Board wishes to continue to make Tustin Meadows a beautiful place to live. If you have further questions please contact the Action Property Management office.
I received a letter to paint my home, when do I have to paint it?
Please contact your manager Cecilia de Heras to set a date to get started. The Board is aware that it is a large cost to the owners. You can send your request in writing through regular us mail to:
Action Property Management
2603 Main Street, Suite 500
Irvine, CA 92614
via email to email@example.com
What colors can I use to paint my house?
The current approved color schemes are on the Sherwin Williams website that was set up for Tustin Meadows. You can access that website from the below link:
Do I need approval to paint my house the same original colors?
No if you are painting your home the original colors or the approved colors you do not have to submit anything in writing. Please be sure that the colors of your house are the original colors.
When do I need to submit an application?
If you don’t want to use the approved colors Homeowners will need to fill out an Architectural (ARC) application and submit that for approval before starting any work. . The application is available on the homeowner portal website…. Click “About” on the green header bar at the top of the page and from the drop down menu, choose ARC Review. You may also obtain a copy of the application by calling the office at 949-450-0202
What should I do if I already painted my house colors that were not approved?
Fill out the architectural application and send it in with the paint samples of the colors that you have already painted. The Architectural Committee will review and provide a decision which will be sent in writing. Please be advised that if your color choice is not approved the Board can request that you re paint with approved colors. This can be added to escrow instructions and could stop any sale until the issue is corrected.
What can I do if I have received a hearing request for painting?
Contact Management immediately to schedule a date to paint and discuss if you can come to the meeting or just provide information in writing for the Board to review at the meeting.
If you have additional questions, please contact your Manager, Cecilia de Heras, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
