Homeowners associations in Wyoming don’t have a specific statute governing them, but there are state laws that can apply to them. Learn about these Wyoming HOA laws below.
The Wyoming Condominium Ownership Act regulates condominium associations in the state. You can find this Act under Title 34, Chapter 20 of the Wyoming Statutes. It consists of only a handful of sections, namely:

You can find the Wyoming Nonprofit Corporation Act under Title 17, Chapter 19 of the Wyoming Statutes. It consists of 18 articles, namely:
According to the Wyoming Solar Rights Act, it is a property right to use solar energy. “Solar right,” as the Act defines it, is “a property right to an unobstructed line-of-sight path from a solar collector to the sun which permits radiation from the sun to impinge directly on the solar collector.” The Act also outlines the restrictions on solar rights and recording solar rights.
Although there is no statute that specifically regulates homeowners associations, the Wyoming Nonprofit Corporation Act applies to HOAs that incorporate as non-profits. Under this Act, associations must allow members to copy and inspect association records under certain conditions (Sections 17-19-1601 to 17-19-1630).
The HOA laws of Wyoming also extend to Fair Housing. The Wyoming Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination based on color, national origin, race, sex, religion, familial status, or disability. It contains similar provisions found within the federal Fair Housing Act as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Victims of housing discrimination can privately sue housing providers in state or federal court. On the other hand, victims may also report the issue to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
