Condominium associations may restrict the ability of unit owners to rent. However, if condominium associations are doing so, they must amend their declaration and record that amendment against the property in order to make the rental restriction effective. The association should also consider when making rental restrictions that they should have a provision allowing for a hardship waiver of the rental restriction in certain cases, granted in the board’s discretion. Generally, we recommend that associations have some form of hardship waiver in their rental restrictions to prevent potential actions to overturn those restrictions in court. Rental restrictions must be recorded against the property as an amendment to the declaration and notice must often be given to the first mortgagees for each unit in order for the process to be complete. Associations should consult with their counsel when restriction rentals to ensure that they follow the proper steps to do so.
