The purpose of rules and regulations is to clarify governing document provisions and regulate behavior. However, many associations adopt rules that directly conflict with their governing documents, are outdated, are too complicated, can’t be enforced, or sometimes even violate laws.

It is important to keep in mind a set of guidelines when establishing new rules for your association. New rules should be:

  1. Consistent with laws and governing documents
  2. Objective
  3. Reasonable
  4. Clear and specific
  5. Put in writing and formally distributed
  6. Written with input from the association attorney and community members
  7. A step forward in enhancing the association
