HOA Forum: Meetings-Connecting With Homeowners In Your Community

The HOA Information & Resource Center is regularly asked questions about association meetings: What are the types of meetings? When are they required to be held? How do we, as a board, conduct these meetings properly? The Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (“CCIOA”) addresses some of these issues, but not all. Whether you are a homeowner, a board member, or a Community Association Manager, understanding how to run a good meeting will help your community flourish.

Allocation of Insurance Deductibles

In our recent article titled “Water Damage: Who’s Responsible?”, we discuss the issues involved in determining responsibility when water damage occurs in a unit within a homeowners association. Another consideration when dealing with water damage in an HOA is who is responsible for the insurance deductible. Generally, if damage to an insured property is less than the amount of the insurance deductible, then the insured would likely not file a claim, as there would be no insurance payout. However, for many associations, the cost of water damage frequently exceeds the amount of the insured’s deductible. When that occurs, the parties involved need to know who will be responsible for paying the deductible. 

Association Committees and How You Can Make Yours More Efficient and Effective

The effort and resources it takes to effectively govern a homeowners association requires collaboration and cooperation from more than one person. As such, the use of committees in community associations can be a very useful tool for accomplishing the goals of the association. However, in order to be most effective, committees should be well formed with specific purposes and guidelines for their operation.
