The California State Assembly describes these governing
documents as follows: "the governing documents of a common interest development including the recorded declaration and
any other document governing the operation of the common interest development (CID)."
A CID, or "common interest development" is real estate
combining that individual ownership of a unit (sometimes called a "separate interest") with realty (sometimes called
a "common interest" or "common area") managed in common by all of the owners with a fiduciary duty to each other
and done so in the form of a homeowners association, sometimes called by different names.
Typical CIDs in California are condominiums, planned unit developments,
stock cooperatives and community apartments, the latter also sometimes referred to as "OYOs or Own Your Owns."
Convenants, Conditions and Restrictions (C, C&Rs) which both benefit the land and burden the land, i.e. the CC&Rs
is a document containing a description of the property's use, as well as limitations as to its use. Also the parcels (units)
in the common interest development (CID) are included in the tract description in the CC&Rs, incorporating them therein
and subjecting the ownership to such covenants, conditions and restrictions.
