Connecticut Senate Bill 152 became effective on May 6, 2016. This bill requires that “each person who offers a residential property containing two or more units in the state for sale, exchange or for lease with option to buy shall attach a photocopy, duplicate original, facsimile transmission or other exact reproduction or duplicate of such disclosure form, signed by the prospective purchase, to any purchase agreement, option or lease containing a purchase option, at the time of closing.” The Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities was tasked with creating a new model form on or before July 1, 2016, to be implemented within 60 days.
In light of this requirement, we have created our new Connecticut Fair Housing Notice (Cx20625), which is an exact reproduction of the model form released by the Connecticut CHRO. Cx20625 will be provided in all closing packages in Connecticut when there is a purchase of 2 or more units. The document will print under the following conditions:
- State Code = Connecticut
- Loan Purpose = Purchase
- Document Package Type = Closing
- Property Type = 2 unit/duplex OR 3+ unit
Cx20625 will be available on July 28, 2016. If you have any questions or concerns about this new document, please contact Client Support at 1.800.497.3584.
