You can google them, if you know the correct name. Sometimes in larger metropolitan areas there are similarly named HOAs and even when they can be found on line, it can be difficult to know if you have the right one. Look for street names.
In Texas, call a Title company. They may charge you for the documents, but if you have concerns about the restrictions, it is a fee well paid.
If you have negotiated an earnest money contract in Texas, our promulgated contracts call for a specified, negotiated number of days for those docs to be delivered to you for review prior to closing. If there is something that you disagree with in the documents, this provides an "out" for you, prior to closing. All of these agreements must be in writing and should be discussed with your agent or attorney.
If it is a new neighborhood, you can walk into the sales office
and ask for that info. If neighborhood is older,
the easiest & fastest way is to contact a buyer's agent (Realtor)
All the Best,
he will have a contact. Here in San Diego, as a Prudential agent we are affiliated with California Title, they are great, so far I always got the CCRs from them when my client wanted them beforehand.
Good luck with your purchase!
Potentially you can ask the seller to show you what they have.
Otherwise the title company will order for you and you have a few days to review based on your contract.
You may be able to go to the HOA or management company website, but they will not always have the HOA docs there for your review without a password.
HOA guides posted in MLS what are covered however once you submit a sales offer HOA rules/reg. are sent to home buyer during option period

Here in the state of Florida usually the listing agent would get a copy from the current owner. However in our area about 40% of homes on the market are short sales and foreclosures making those documents harder to come by. So, if you really like the home and are interested in making an offer, you will want to review those docs first. They may make or break the deal and its worth paying the Association for a copy.
