A key challenge of condo living is understanding that while you own your property, you do not have the absolute right to do whatever you like. The condominium association has the right and the responsibility to establish rules and regulations that govern how owners are to behave on the property and to impose fines for violations. The goal is to preserve harmonious living for all of the owners.

In order to apply a fine and ensure that it is enforceable, however, the association must take the following 5 steps of due process:

  1. Cease and Desist Letter
  2. Hearing Notice
  3. Hearing
  4. Decision
  5. Appeal

Detail on these steps can be found in our Templates & Guides. For more information on creating and enforcing Rules & Regulations, see our Educational Videos.
