Colorado Laws Affecting Community Associations
The Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (“CCIOA” or “Act”), which went into effect on July 1, 1992, is a comprehensive statute covering the creation and operation of common interest communities (“CICs”). Its goal is the effective and efficient operation of homeowner associations in those many areas in which associations are involved, such as assessment collection, insurance, rules and regulations, and the maintenance of common elements. The Act gives more specific delineation to the organizational structure of homeowner associations and better standardizes association operations. The Act also does much to address responsible and flexible development of condominiums, town homes and planned unit developments (“PUDs”).

HB 10-1278 created the HOA Information & Resource Center to provide information on the rights and duties of unit owners, developers and associations under the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act. The Center is housed within the Colorado Division of Real Estate, which is under the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA).
Among other things, the Center was created to compile statistical information related to community associations, and was to serve as a clearing house for HOA-related complaints. Mr. Acker fielded these complaint calls throughout 2011, and issued his first report in Januaruy 2012. The report showed a variety of complaints related to specific categories, including requests for records, failure to follow governing documents and allegations of harassment and retaliation against owners by boards and managers.
