Can board members be paid?

Can board members be paid?

ANSWERS:

First, you must consult the governing documents of the association. Many contain an express prohibition on directors or officers receiving compensation, or at a minimum, require  some percentage of the members to approve such compensation.  In the absence of any such express requirements, the Board, by majority vote, may approve reasonable compensation for themselves.

Can the co-owners have a meeting and sign a petition (provided there is 51%) to remove the management company and present this to the Board of Managers?

Our condo association which consists of 64 units has been under the ruling of a management company since the beginning of 2014.  Many co-owners are not satisfied with this arrangement.  For the past two years our annual dues have been increased $10 per month.  The co-owners receive nothing in addition to our designated accommodations - insurance on outside of building, trash pick-up, mowing and scheduled lawn care applications, and snow removal.  Any concerns on the outside of our condo must be addressed directly to the management company.  Some items take several months to accomplish the desired result.  Can the co-owners have a meeting and sign a petition (provided there is 51%) to remove the management company and present this to the Board of Managers?

Associations allowed to charge for funding?

How much are associations allowed to charge at closing for funding?

ANSWERS:

I assume this question refers to the capital contribution or capital improvement fee due at resale? In Pennsylvania, the collection of capital improvement fees is governed by Section 3302 (a)(12) of the Uniform Condominium Act (68 PA.C.S.A.

Banning Smoking: What’s the Power of the HOA?

Associations taking the step to ban smoking altogether should first look into the laws and local ordinances in their area...bans can extend to include common areas and limited common areas, such as balconies and patios.

ladsysmokingarticle.jpgSmoking in America has seen a decline over the years due to health risks and high costs. Many homeowners and condominium associations, though, still grapple with the issue and how to determine their reach of power with regard to prohibiting smoking. Some seek to ban smoking in their units or common areas as a means of avoiding the smell and especially the health risks of secondhand smoke. Smoking bans complicate the matter, and certain associations seek to establish designated smoking areas. The power to restrict within an association remains the biggest question for board members and managers alike.
