New Castle County


New Castle County enacted laws that apply only in New Castle County. These laws are in addition to the Delaware Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act (“DUCIOA”). If there is a conflict with the DUCIOA, the New Castle County Law applies.

New Castle County prepared the brochures listed below:

Homeowners Association Manual

This is a good general overview of the role of a Common Interest Community Homeowners Association in New Castle County. Many of the comments are generally true in other counties as well. However, the references to the services provided by the County’s Office of Community Governing are no longer available. The office is no longer functioning.
