Pet Rules and Fees in Colorado HOA

Question:

Our CCR and State statues state the Assesment fee are based on sq ft of units. This fee covers maintenance and general common area expenses. Can the HOA charge a separate maintenance fee on pets?

Our CCR has a pet regulation where it states “all animals must register and be approved by BOD”. A new Rule and regulaion created by the board state only dogs have to register. The board president has 7 cats. Does the rules and regulation supercedes the CCR?

Answer:

Hi Conchita,

Kindly refer to the governing documents to see whether the association is allowed to impose additional maintenance fees on pets. You may also consult a lawyer for further guidance. Apart from this, the CC&Rs take precedence over the HOA’s rules and regulations. If the rule contradicts what’s stated in the CC&R, kindly bring this up with the HOA board.
