In addition to the annual Secretary of State Registration, HOAs are required to register annually with the Colorado Division of Real Estate. An HOA that fails to register timely, renew or pay the required fee may be precluded from imposing or enforcing a lien for assessments.
The Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (CCIOA), in section 38-33.3-401, C.R.S., mandates that all common interest communities register with the HOA Information and Resource Center, including those which were created before July 1, 1992.* This requirement became effective August 7, 2013.
- *Common interest communities which were created prior to July 1, 1992, are commonly referred to as Pre-CCIOA communities. “CCIOA” is the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act, which became effective on July 1, 1992.
- Every HOA must renew their registration annually.
Only associations that have greater than $5,000 in annual revenue are required to pay the registration fee. Associations that have $5,000 or less in annual revenue are still required to register but do not have to pay the registration fee.
- The HOA Initial Registration Fee is $30. (This fee applies to any HOA registering for the first time.)
- The HOA Renewal Fee is $33. (This applies to any HOA that has been previously registered with the Division.)
- All fees are nonrefundable.
