The Common Interest Community Board is a separate agency within the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation.

See the summary for the department for the powers and duties applicable to all regulatory boards. Code of Virginia, Title 54.1, Chapter 2.

The board is authorized to regulate common interest community managers and their supervisory and principal employees. The board is responsible for administering Virginia's common interest community and property registration laws: Common Interest Communities (Code of Virginia, Title 54.1, Chapter 23.3), Condominium Act (Code of Virginia, Title 55, Chapter 4.2), Virginia Real Estate Time-Share Act (Code of Virginia, Title 55, Chapter 21), Virginia Real Estate Cooperative Act (Code of Virginia, Title 55, Chapter 24), Property Owners´ Association Act (Code of Virginia, Title 55, Chapter 26), and Common Interest Community Management Information Fund (Code of Virginia, Title 55, Chapter 29).
