Utah Homeowner Associations Registration

Important Notice: This information relates to the Condominium Ownership Act, Utah Code § 57-8-13.1, and the Community Association Act, Utah Code § 57-8a-105. The information provided herein is not to be construed as legal advice or taken as such.

An Overview of Homeowner Associations in Utah

In Utah, two key laws govern homeowners associations ("HOAs") and condominium owners associations ("COAs"). The Condominium Act, Utah Code § 57-8, applies to COAs, and deals with individually owned units supported by collectively held facilities and areas, such as condominiums or townhomes. The Community Association Act, Utah Code § 57-8a, applies to all other types of homeowner associations. These laws contain provisions governing HOAs and COAs, but those laws are enforced in informal proceedings before the association or in civil court and not by the Utah Department of Commerce.

Registration of both HOAs and COAs is mandatory and is not the same registration that is required to register a business with the Division of Corporations and Commercial Code.

The information on this site is meant to be an overview of state law governing HOAs and COAs. It is not all-inclusive, and you may want to consult the laws directly for more specific details on a given topic.
