  • From Nancy Levine on Access to HOA records

    There needs to be a one source database of current lawsuits against any particular HOA in any county – other than going through county court records which are usually behind. The AARP wrote a good primer on the duties of HOA’s in Florida. There is a Seminole case in District Court of homeowners winning against HOA foreclosure – wherein they assert they have first priority lien over mortgages to foreclose. The maricopa county general’s office gave me the name of a company that audits HOA records if you make a claim or request for audit – I lost the name because after I threatened to have this done, my issues were resolved by HOA. Does anyone know what company does this as an advocate for homeowners in Arizona? Our HOA year end budget looks drastically off – the numbers and justication for costs and special assessments look bogus, but I have no comparison or rule of law to refer to check.

  • From Matt on Does an alternative to HOAs exist?

    If you are referring to Alternatives to HOA Management, i’d like an answer as well. Such as, Is anyone self governing? I’ve thought about maybe having an Accountant take over the bills and dues and go to self govern. Has anyone done this?

    • From Dennis on Does an alternative to HOAs exist?

      Matt,

      there are greater than 9500 HOA’s and Condo’s in Arizona. About 5000 are professionally managed by Management companies that belong either AACM or CAI . The remainder are either managed by management companies without professional affiliation and many times training and certification. The remainder are self managed. Where the board does the work them selves or simply hires a CPA to do the financials and a secretary to manage the records. While professional management with organizations certified by one of the two trade organizations is better than the fly by night organizations I’ve seen too many incompetent certified community managers to put much faith in them. Being self managed by board members that truly want to help the organization and do things in the best interest of the community would be far better than trusting your money and community to the fly by night management companies.

    If you purchase a condominium or co-op, your board may require you to buy condo insurance or home insurance. Be sure to check with your board to see what type of policy is required.
