Articles of Incorporation

Section 7-121-401 of the CRNA defines articles of incorporation as meaning not only the original articles, but also “amended articles of incorporation, restated articles of incorporation, and other instruments, however designated, on file in the records of the secretary of state that have the effect of amending or supplementing in some respect the original or amended articles of incorporation…” The articles of incorporation must define the legal name, address and corporate status of the HOA. Section 7-122-102 of the CRNA provides for what else must be contained in the articles of incorporation. Articles of incorporation may also contain provisions that define some of the functions of the association as well as setting forth the general power and authority of the association. Nearly all homeowner associations in Colorado are registered as non-profit corporations.
