Recording of Amendments

Amendments to declarations resulting from a membership vote should be properly recorded in the office of the Register of Deeds to give notice of the amendment.  The document should recite:

  • the date of the meeting,
  • the total number of lots subject to the declarations,
  • the number of lots present at the meeting or represented by proxy, and
  • the number of affirmative votes in favor of the amendment to show that the amendment met the requirements of the Planned Community Act and the declarations.

It also should be signed by the President and attested by the Secretary of the association.  Preparation of the amendment and proper recording by one of our attorneys is inexpensive, and is the best way to have the amendment properly recorded.
