HOA Task Force – House Bill 23-1105
House Bill 23-1105 was signed into law by Governor Jared Polis on Wednesday, May 24, 2023. The House Bill requires, in part, that each homeowner association in the State of Colorado notify its owners of the formation of a governmental HOA Task Force, to be appointed by August 1, 2023. The task force will examine a variety of issues pertaining to homeowner rights and responsibilities. In addition, the task force will examine Colorado law as it pertains to homeowner associations and will utilize a sampling of individual association documents as part of that process.
If you have questions pertaining to the Task Force, please contact the HOA Information Office, part of the Division of Real Estate within the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies. No action is required by you as the property owner. This notice is being sent on behalf of your Association to meet the notification requirements set forth in the Bill.
