The majority of the changes to the revised forms were necessitated by the new Residential Resale Disclosure Act (RRDA).

Effective July 1, 2023, this new act replaces the Property Owners Association (POA) and the Condominium Owners Association (COA) Acts. The new RRDA consolidates most of the provisions of the POA and COA acts, but there are some key differences licensees need to be aware of:

  1. The following terms have been removed from the act:
  • Property Owners Association
  • Condominium Owners Association
  • Association disclosure packet

Property Owner’s and Condo Owner’s Associations are now collectively referred to as Common Interest Communities (CIC). The CIC disclosure information that sellers are required to provide to purchasers is now called the Resale Certificate.

  1. The format and content of the Resale Certificate has been changed.

NOTE: If you have a residential property listed for sale that is not under contract by July 1, 2023, you or your seller will need to order a Resale Certificate for the listing to comply with the new law.

  1. All resale certificate fees are now due when the item is ordered. This means that when a seller orders the resale certificate, they will have to pay for the certificate at that time, not at settlement, unless the association adopts a different policy.
  2. IV. Language was added to the RRD Act clarifying that any reference to “days” in the act means calendar days, not business days.
  3. Under the new RRD Act, the seller is still required to order and provide a Resale Certificate to the purchaser. However, as of July 1, 2023, the purchaser may waive their right to the 3-day right of termination.

If you have any questions concerning the new Residential Resale Disclosure Act or the changes to the CVR MLS forms, you may contact Peggy Lynch, Vice President of Risk Management and Broker Services by calling 804.422.5006 or emailing [email protected].
