Manager Licensing Update (May 15, 2015)
- As a Manager of a Community Association, you need to be familiar with all the requirements of the new Colorado Licensing Information. Of particular note are the Licensing Rules as adopted by the Division of Real Estate (under DORA). The E Rules establish the accounting practices and internal controls that CAMs must adhere to; the D Rules include specific insurance requirements; I would encourage all CAM's to become familiar with the content of these Rules.
- The deadline for all managers to be licensed is 7/1/15, however, a new "Manager Licensure Clean-Up Bill" yet to be signed by the Governor (although has passed both the House and Senate) will:
- let CEOs off the hook for licensing if they do not actively manage HOA's and clarifies who is required to be licensed
- permit managers to request a proivisional license should full licensing not be achieved by the deadline
- establish an Apprentice License for those new to the industry
- clarify the exam criteria and that those holding the credentials of CMCA, AMS, or PCAM, amongst some others as maybe recognized by the Director of the Division of Real Estate, need only take and pass the Colorado Law Portion of the licensure exam
- House Bill 13-1277 was signed into law on 5/28/13 and requires anyone managing a common interest community in Colorado to be certified and licensed by the State by 7/1/15.
- This House Bill 12-1237 clarifies which records shall be maintained by the association and disclosed to a unit owner, or a designated agent, upon appropriate request. The Bill became effective 1/1/13.
