General Contractual Provisions that should be included in all HOA contracts:
A. Use of “Will” and “May”. “Will” is a mandatory word denoting an obligation to pay or perform. “May” is a permissive word denoting an option.
B. Use of “Pronouns”. All personal pronouns used in this Agreement, whether used in the masculine, feminine, or neuter gender, will include all other genders; the singular will include the plural and the plural will include the singular.
C. Use of “Including”. “Including,” when following any general statement, term, or matter, will not be construed to limit the statement, term, or matter to the specific items or matters as provided immediately following the word or to similar items or matters, whether or not non-limiting language (such as “without limitation,” or “but not limited to,” or words of similar import) is used with reference to the word or the similar items or matters, but rather will be deemed to refer to all other items or matters that could reasonably fall within the broadest possible scope of the general statement, term, or matter.
