[Read more…] about What are the interim guidelines for having a homeowner meeting (via zoom) during the pandemic? Our meetings are generally held in June. Is there a time limit on postponing the meeting? We are trying to get unfinished business completed before we schedule our annual meeting.

[Read more…] about One of our residents is installing a generator (against rules) with a doctor’s note that is it a medical requirement because of an undisclosed phobia. The board was provided with a local psychiatrist’s note. Do we allow it and how do we explain it’s allowance to the rest of community with out disclosing a resident’s medical condition?
[Read more…] about We always allowed residents some leeway with decorating their doors, especially with wreaths. Our rules say nothing is allowable outside resident units. A problem tenant has gone too far with an elf hanging from a noose. He says if he must remove the elf, everyone has to remove their wreaths. Is that true? Also can we remove the elf ourselves and hold it in the office until after the holidays?
[Read more…] about If there is a disagreement between the board and manager how to present a report, who is the report represented from? Meaning if the manager is uncomfortable are they obligated to present the report as the board directs (on behalf of the board) or may they insist the board present the report themselves?
[Read more…] about We have a bar in our clubhouse. It is unused, there is no bartender, no alcohol is sold. Several residents would like to start a bottle club. They would “stock” the bar with their alcohol and on weekends hire a bartender to serve their alcohol to their group. Any resident may “join” the club. The only requirement is to provide alcohol. However, some residents feel they should be entitled to “free” drinks since the club is using the bar and storing their alcohol in bar storage. Can this group residents act as an unofficial club? If the board designates this club as official, what are reasonable accommodations for all residents to participate?
[Read more…] about A resident’s chimney suffered damage from what they claim is excessive vibration from a county road project just outside our homeowner association. Other residents agree the vibration that day was excessive but suffered no damage even though their homes are of the same build and timeframe. The resident with damage has motivated fellow residents that our HOA should take action on all their behalf and test homes for possible damage. Should our association initiate a conversation with an attorney in regard to this matter and if so must we report a conversation took place (incase we decline to take action)?
