Do new condo association rules get recorded with registry of deeds?

Posted on Wed, Jan 19, 2011 @ 08:24 AM

In Massachusetts does the elected Board of Managers have to record updated Rules and Regulations with the State of Massachusetts Registry of Deeds? In the Master Deed there is no direction to record changes just that "from time to time the Board may add, or delete, rules and regulations". In December 2003 our 32 unit condo building the Board of Managers added the regulation of the entire property being a non-smoking property after a survey vote of 30 units wanted the property to be designated as such. Should we record this at registry? Thank you for any advise.
