Dear Mister Condo,
Do condo unit owners need to meet to discuss new rules and regulations before they are adopted? Does a condo unit owner need to sign the rule and agree to it before it takes effect?
Mister Condo replies:
R.H., your governing documents outline the procedure for modifying, removing, and adding new rules. It is not common that a full meeting or vote of unit owners to be required to add, modify, or remove rules. Typically, it is a function of the Board adopting the rule following whatever procedures are outlined in the governing documents and then publishing the rule change as well as providing proper notice to the home or unit owners that the rule has been added, removed, or modified. It is uncommon that a unit owner would have to sign anything agreeing to the rule for the rule to become effective. All the best!
