FindHOALaw Quick Summary:

This bill would add Civil Code § 4777 to require an association to notify the residents of a separate interest, along with the residents of any impacted adjacent separate interests, when pesticides are to be applied to the separate interest or common area by an unlicensed pest control operator.  The notice must contain the pest(s) to be controlled, the name and brand of the pesticide product to be used, the approximate date, time, and frequency with which the pesticide will be applied, in addition to specified verbiage included in the Code.  Notice must be provided at least 48 hours prior to application by posting the notice in a conspicuous location within the common area in which the pesticide is to be applied.  If a posted notice is not practicable, notice shall be provided by individual delivery.  If the pest poses an immediate threat to health and safety, thereby making prior notice unreasonable, notice must be posted as soon as reasonably practicable, but not later than one hour after the pesticide is applied.  A copy of the notice shall be attached to the minutes of the subsequent board meeting immediately following the application.
