How do you request a Home Owners Association audit?
Read your governing documents to determine the frequency of required audits, which may be annually or every other year. Some audit specifications depend on the number of 'units' and/or the amount of the annual budget. Or there may be no requirement stated.

Once you've determined what's legally required by your Declaration -- or not, send a letter to the board requesting either proof of an audit or a copy of it. In the letter, ask that the topic be covered in a board meeting, and require a vote of the board to conduct/ prove/ share audit details with owners, who are members of the association and entitled to these details.

Your association is probably also a state-registered, non-profit corporation, and your state law relative to audits of these corporate records may also be a lever you can use, if necessary to get the information you want.
