The charter of a Home Owner Association (HOA) usually states the powers, but, in general, the HOA is a collective entity that is established in part to protect the mutual interests of the members against violations. The association may have legal standing to be heard in any zoning or building case that relates to property of the members individually, the HOA common ownership, or any abutting property to that of the association.
