A: Basically, an HOA management company assists your neighborhood’s board with any and all day-to-day tasks that help successfully run your neighborhood. This typically includes guiding the board and consulting on any additional duties that need to be fulfilled; executing any decisions and policies approved by the board; and maintaining important documents (accounting, records, etc.) for the HOA.
A: Running an HOA is hard work, especially when run by volunteer board members who likely have other jobs, hobbies and responsibilities.

Professional management companies keep abreast of State and Federal laws that govern the operation of HOAs. Our team at Kellison also handles any and all execution of the board’s decisions, and we perform routine neighborhood drive-throughs to ensure homeowners are complying with their CC&Rs.

Keep it simple and to the point, and remember to stick to the agenda — don’t let the meeting get off-topic. Most of all, remind your board about meeting rules and that they must be followed to ensure productivity. You and your fellow board members must act as a cohesive team and should be able to decisively act on action items.

A: Whether you’re a new board member preparing for your role or a seasoned one struggling with a non-compliant neighbor, enforcing the homeowner’s association rules in your neighborhood is your responsibility. If a homeowner is in violation of HOA rules, we recommend checking the bylaws, declaring the violation to the homeowner via a notice and holding a hearing to allow for an avenue of open communication. Be lenient, and do what is necessary to ensure legitimacy.
