Rules and regulations allow associations to maintain property values and protect the quality of life of residents. However, many associations have rules that are unnecessarily complicated, difficult to enforce, or violate laws.

An association’s rules and regulations should be:

  1. Reasonable
  2. Consistent with laws and governing documents
  3. Formulated with community input
  4. Put in writing
  5. Distributed periodically
  6. Unambiguous
  7. Easy to follow
  8. Only developed if necessary
  9. Enforced uniformly
  10. Used to educate owners about what they should do instead of what they shouldn’t do.

It's always a good idea to have your Rules & Regulations reviewed by a condo/community association attorney before approving. To learn more, click here.
