Overfunded Reserves: Can They Be Returned?

Posted in Hudson Valley CAI, Featured, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York City - Big Apple CAI, Missouri

 

stuffed_hoa.jpgReserves serve a crucial purpose to maintaining the well-being of a homeowners association. Associations use reserves in budgeting for the replacement of the common elements, and they effectively provide a safety net against unexpected special assessments for the owners. Associations, in an effort to cover every possible repair or damage incurred throughout the course of a year, may sometimes overfund their reserves. While this is not necessarily an issue, overfunded reserves may raise questions within the community and among the homeowners.

In the past we have let one of our resident's kids sell Girl Scout cookies. Do we have to allow other residents to sell things?

Posted in Hudson Valley CAI, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York City - Big Apple CAI, Missouri, Question Answers

AHNQAQuestion:

We're a building with 20 units. We have an alcove off a busy street. In the past we have let one of our resident's kids sell Girl Scout cookies from the alcove. I was approached by another resident who now wants to allow his teenage son to solicit for a trip to Europe something I'm not comfortable with. When I told him to come to the board meeting, he said that because we did for the Girl Scout, we need to do it for him. Do we?
