Can a 9 unit condo association in Connecticut change their bylaws so that unit owner cannot rent their units to section 8 applicants?
Yes. Rental restrictions are common. Section 8 tenants are not a "protected class" under any federal or state discrimination law, so restricting rent to non-Section 8 tenants is arguably lawful.
Can we also change the bylaws to set the limit on how many of the 9 units can be rented..
Also yes. As stated, rental restrictions are common in HOAs. Amount of tenants, length of tenancy, etc - this can all be restricted.
We want a maximum of two of the nine units alloted for rentals (Currently two units are being rented.)
Yes, this is lawful. HOAs often only allow a certain percentage to be rented, and it is first come first serve as to which owner fills up the allowed spots.
