Well I guess technically, you don't. However, if they are being given to you by the HOA through their agent, they would be committing fraud if they were giving you something that is not current.
If I were you you I would be more worried about getting a current HOA budget. See if they are solvent and if they are carrying a future Capital expenditure budget for Roof, exterior painting and other possible liabilities of this sort. Depending on the age of the buildings, these expenses will be necessary in the future and if there is no capital fund, then the expense will become a special assessment to all residents.
