Davis-Stirling Defined - Condominiums were first regulated in California in 1963 by passage of the California Condominium Act. The laws governing common interest developments were revised and expanded in 1985 by passage of the Davis-Stirling Act (Civil Code 1350-1377) which was named after the 2 assemblymen who promoted the bill, Gray Davis and Larry Stirling. Since then, community association law has been one of the most active areas of the law in California (and the nation) with 50-100 bills introduced into the California legislature each year.
Adrian Adams is one of the leading community association attorneys in California with a practice that includes a large number of highrise associations and stock cooperatives as well as lake, equestrian, and ocean-front communities.
