J.S. from New Haven County writes:
Dear Mister Condo,
May non-owners be directors of CT common interest communities? Our By-Laws require that only owners may serve as directors and several non-owner residents have expressed interest in serving on the Board.
Mister Condo replies:
J.S., it isn’t a question of State of Connecticut laws but, rather, the association’s by-laws that restrict who can serve on the Board. As you have stated, only owners may serve on the Board. Connecticut does not restrict who may serve on the Board as far as I know but your governance documents most certainly do. The non-owners should not be allowed to serve on the Board. All the best!
