What is Adequate Meeting Notice for an HOA?

B.H. from Hartford County writes:

Dear Mister Condo,

How much time should an HOA give residents that a meeting is scheduled?

Mister Condo replies:

B.H., HOAs should give as much notice as possible to owners before a meeting takes place. Some governing documents spell it out specifically; some just say adequate notice. The Common Interest Ownership Act spells it out as 5 business days (one week) which would be the minimum for those associations that need to be compliant with the CIOA law in Connecticut. The bottom line is that the HOA must give fair and adequate notice to all unit owners lest they wish to have an owner claim they received inadequate notice which could nullify any actions taken by the Board at an improperly noticed meeting. Hope that helps.
