Is it true that Board adopted Rules and Regulations have to be recorded within local government.
I thought I heard about this at a seminar.
I received your question about recording board rules and regulations.
There is a provision in the Homeowners’ Association Statute, Chapter 720, that does seem to require the board adopted rules to be recorded. The definition of Governing Documents seems to infer that the rules and regulations are to be recorded. The definition follows.
(8) “Governing documents” means:
(a) The recorded declaration of covenants for a community and all duly adopted and recorded amendments, supplements, and recorded exhibits thereto;
(b) The articles of incorporation and bylaws of the homeowners’ association and any duly adopted amendments thereto; and
(c) Rules and regulations adopted under the authority of the recorded declaration, articles of incorporation, or bylaws and duly adopted amendments thereto.
There is no such requirement for a condominium association.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you need additional information.
