Common Interest Ownership Act
This statute, also known as “CIOA,” applies to common interest communities created on or after January 1, 1984. Substantial portions of it apply to communities created before then, as stated in the footnotes in the table of contents and in the parenthetical notes after relevant section numbers.
A comprehensive set of amendments were made to the Connecticut Common Interest Ownership Act in 2009. The amendments are based on the 2008 Amendments to the Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act or “UCIOA 3.0,” which the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws promulgated. Portions of the amendments were effective upon enactment in 2009. The rest became effective on July 1, 2010. UCIOA is available here.
The amendments are contained in Public Act No. 09-225, which is available here. Corrections to the amendments are contained in Public Act No. 10-186, which is available here.
