Rolling Hills Community Association (RHCA)
 
The RHCA was established in 1936 by developer A.E. Hanson and the Palos Verdes Corporation to develop the community and to carry out their vision of a private, gated community made up of little ranches and family homes.  Today, the Association's primary purpose is to maintain the roads and other common areas of the community, uphold the architectural standards of the community, operate the gates and assist the members of the Board, committees and members of the community in upholding and maintaining the community's charm and appeal.
 
Easements
 
The community places a high value on the privacy and rural character of the community created by the open space around each residence.  This is achieved through both the regulation of the size and style of buildings and the preservation of open easements that surround each property. 
 
Through the deed restrictions, every homeowner has granted control of easements on their property to the RHCA. These easements are used for roadways, bridle trails, utilities and drains. When they are not used for those purposes, easements should remain free of building, planting or other obstructions unless licensed by the RHCA. For information about the easement on your property, or licensing process please contact the RHCA office.  Easement FAQ
 
Buying
 
Before purchasing a property in Rolling Hills, it is strongly recommended that a potential buyer visit the Association office to review the property file and learn about the community.  Once you have closed escrow on a property, please plan to come by the RHCA office so we may register you into the gate system and get you more acquainted with the community.
 
Leasing
 
Properties must be leased in their entirety. Portions of property are not permitted to be leased; renting rooms or accessory buildings is strictly prohibited. Tenants must abide by the rules and regulations of the Association.
 
The RHCA requires that each of the following be submitted to the Association office when a property is leased:
  • A copy of the Lease Agreement. 
  • The alternative mailing address of the property owner.
  • The telephone number, alternative mailing address (if applicable) and vehicle information of the new tenants. 
  • A deposit of $200 for each vehicle the tenant wishes to enter the community through the resident gate. This deposit will be returned when the tenant vacates the property, purchases property in Rolling Hills or sells the vehicle. Deposits may be transferred from an old vehicle to a new vehicle.
