Villa Vicenza Homeowners Ass'n v. Nobel Court Dev., LLC, D054550

In a homeowners association's suit for construction defects, trial court's denial of developers' motion to compel arbitration is affirmed as the recorded CC&R's, standing alone, are not a contract between the developer and the homeowners association, which only came into existence after the CC&Rs were recorded, and thus, here there has been no showing the association entered into a binding arbitration agreement.
