For an HOA board with a lot of questions, hiring a property management company can be a great way to iron out any issues or uncertainties. It’s understandable for board members to feel overwhelmed with the long list of day-to-day processes and tasks to fulfill, so a property manager can relieve a lot of that burden.
However, sometimes board members want to do their own research and educate themselves further on running an HOA. For these instances, there are some great resources online that board members can utilize as they head their community.
Board members can engage in online discussions at HOATalk.com, a website with thousands of articles and topics for sharing ideas and discussing issues. They also have more than 35,000 members, so it shouldn’t be hard to find answers to any questions or concerns your board has.
This website can be helpful in preventing and resolving conflicts in your community, avoiding legal trouble, and staying updated on HOA laws for your Charlotte-area HOA. Although a management company can usually give the best advice pertaining to your community specifically, this can be a great resource for individual research.
This site allows you to view resources and directories, such as a list of vendors in the area, for HOAs in Charlotte and surrounding areas. You can view articles, videos, and read about state laws pertaining to your association.
