7. OWNERS’ ASSOCIATIONS. This Section is applicable if the Property is located within one or more Common Interest Communities and subject to one or more declarations (Association).
7.1. Common Interest Community Disclosure. THE PROPERTY IS LOCATED WITHIN A COMMON INTEREST COMMUNITY AND IS SUBJECT TO THE DECLARATION FOR THE COMMUNITY. THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY WILL BE REQUIRED TO BE A MEMBER OF THE OWNERS’ ASSOCIATION FOR THE COMMUNITY AND WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE BYLAWS AND RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE ASSOCIATION.
THE DECLARATION, BYLAWS AND RULES AND REGULATIONS WILL IMPOSE FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS UPON THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY, INCLUDING AN OBLIGATION TO PAY ASSESSMENTS OF THE ASSOCIATION. IF THE OWNER DOES NOT PAY THESE ASSESSMENTS, THE ASSOCIATION COULD PLACE A LIEN ON THE PROPERTY AND POSSIBLY SELL IT TO PAY THE DEBT. THE DECLARATION, BYLAWS AND RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE COMMUNITY MAY PROHIBIT THE OWNER FROM MAKING CHANGES TO THE PROPERTY WITHOUT AN ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW BY THE ASSOCIATION (OR A COMMITTEE OF THE ASSOCIATION) AND THE APPROVAL OF THE ASSOCIATION. PURCHASERS OF PROPERTY WITHIN THE COMMON INTEREST COMMUNITY SHOULD INVESTIGATE THE FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS OF MEMBERS OF THE ASSOCIATION. PURCHASERS SHOULD CAREFULLY READ THE DECLARATION FOR THE COMMUNITY AND THE BYLAWS AND RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE ASSOCIATION.
7.2. Association Documents to Buyer. Seller is obligated to provide to Buyer the Association Documents (defined below), at Seller’s expense, on or before Association Documents Deadline. Seller authorizes the Association to provide the Association Documents to Buyer, at Seller’s expense. Seller’s obligation to provide the Association Documents is fulfilled upon Buyer’s receipt of the Association Documents, regardless of who provides such documents.
7.3. Association Documents. Association documents (Association Documents) consist of the following:
7.3.1. All Association declarations, articles of incorporation, bylaws, articles of organization, operating agreements, rules and regulations, party wall agreements and the Association’s responsible governance policies adopted under § 38-33.3-209.5, 309 C.R.S.;

Nothing in this Section limits the Seller’s obligation to disclose adverse material facts as required under § 10.2. (Disclosure of Adverse Material Facts; Subsequent Disclosure; Present Condition) including any problems or defects in the common elements or limited common elements of the Association property.
7.4. Conditional on Buyer’s Review. Buyer has the right to review the Association Documents. Buyer has the Right to Terminate under § 24.1., on or before Association Documents Termination Deadline, based on any unsatisfactory provision in any of the Association Documents, in Buyer’s sole subjective discretion. Should Buyer receive the Association Documents after Association Documents Deadline, Buyer, at Buyer’s option, has the Right to Terminate under § 24.1. by Buyer’s Notice to Terminate received by Seller on or before ten days after Buyer’s receipt of the Association Documents. If Buyer does not receive the Association Documents, or if Buyer’s Notice to Terminate would otherwise be required to be received by Seller after Closing Date, Buyer’s Notice to Terminate must be received by Seller on or before Closing. If Seller does not receive Buyer’s Notice to Terminate within such time, Buyer accepts the provisions of the Association Documents as satisfactory and Buyer waives any Right to Terminate under this provision, notwithstanding the provisions of § 8.6. (Third Party Right to Purchase/Approve).
