Saul Ewing’s Condominium and Community Associations Practice is pleased to once again offer its annual summary of the Illinois Condominium Property Act ("ICPA").
2020 and 2021 were years that no one will soon forget, with condominium associations scrambling to ensure resident safety in the midst of a global pandemic. Not surprisingly, the legislature made no changes to the Illinois Condominium Property Act (“ICPA”) in 2020 and only one change in 2021 (which allows associations to amend their declarations to require that a majority of their board members live on-site). However, the courts remained active, issuing many important rulings affecting condominium associations. These court opinions impose new requirements for rule violation hearings, address the ability of associations to prohibit short-term leasing through websites like AirBNB, limit the type of claims association members may bring for construction defects, and expand the type of claims unit owners may bring against their associations and property managers.
