All community associations in Colorado must register with the Division of Real Estate by January 1, 2011. Associations that do not register will lose their lien rights and the ability to enforce recorded covenants. The January 1st deadline, and the harsh consequences for associations, makes compliance a top priority. However, the Division of Real Estate has not finalized the registration process, so associations cannot yet comply with the law. You can learn more about the registration process on the Division of Real Estate’s website.

We will post updates on the registration process to our firm’s website as soon as more information is available. You can receive updates via email by subscribing to the RSS feed along the left side of the page at
