Virginia Common Interest Community Regulations — In 2008, Virginia implemented a statutory based management company licensure program. As part of that program, the Common Interest Community Board (CICB) was created and charged with drafting regulations to clarify and assist with implementation of the new law. In fall of 2008, the CICB approved emergency regulations while they continued to draft, vet and publish the final regulations.  The regulations are final and are part of the permanent regulatory requirements governing licensing, replacing the initial set of emergency regulations on April 1, 2010. The provisional license expires on June 30, 2011. By June 30, 2011 all companies will need to follow all of the community manager regulations.  Click here for the regulations.
