News for community association managers

  In the News 
  • Del. county's proposal targets formation, management of HOAs
    A Delaware county is considering an ordinance that would revamp how HOAs are created and managed by developers, with the goal of restoring homeowners' faith and improving the upkeep of communities. "No one ordinance solves all problems, but I think this gets us a lot closer to making sure all of the players involved understand how it's going to work, how the process works, who is responsible for maintaining what and when," Kent County Planning Director Sarah Keifer says.

  • Banks face foreclosure for unpaid HOA fees
    Banks that have repossessed Florida homes but haven't been paying HOA dues are facing foreclosure so other homeowners aren't left facing the costs. "I own two properties and it really ticks me off when the banks don't pay their fair share," says Don Gonzales of Homestead, Fla. "Everybody else has to make it up." CNNMoney (12/26) Email this Story
  • Lawyer: Renters are eligible for HOA board positions
    A condominium owner is concerned that a renter in a foreclosed unit while serving as an HOA board's treasurer creates a conflict of interest, but lawyer Richard White disagrees. "The statutes have very few requirements to serve as a director or officer in a condominium. Ownership is not a requirement and therefore a renter or non-owner can serve on the board," White writes. "I have seen non-owners with more experience than any member serve on boards and work harder to do a better job." The Miami Herald (free registration) (12/29) Email this Story
