LAKE FOREST HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION
The Lake Forest Home Owners Association (HOA), exists for two primary purposes – to manage the common areas and to enforce the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CCR’s) – as per the legal documents that created the HOA.  Every homeowner receives a copy of the documents when they purchase a home in Sonoma, usually at closing.
