http://www.accuinc.comMost communities in the US these days are overseen by an HOA. This HOA, or homeowners association, is in charge of making sure that the neighborhood is kept up, that every homeowner is doing their part to make sure the neighborhood looks good, and to crack down on individual homeowners who aren’t doing their part. Of course, HOAs vary widely depending on the community they’re overseeing, what state they’re in, or if they’re overseeing a housing community or an apartment complex. Regardless, it’s their job to make sure that every individual property is being managed correctly, and to ensure that issues that impact the whole community are handled quickly and thoroughly. For example, if you living in a community of homes, the HOA needs to make sure that the roads and sidewalks are in good shape, and that the drainage system is working properly. If they’re overseeing an apartment complex, it’s their job to handle any piping issues or other issues that impact every resident in the complex.

Every HOA in the country has a board, and most of those boards have a president. It’s the job of the HOA president to make sure that the HOA has enough money to carry out their role, and to either lower or raise HOA dues depending on how much money the HOA is spending each year. However, it is not and should not be the role of the HOA president to do the job of an HOA management company.

To highlight this point, it’s first important to understand the distinction between an HOA and an HOA management company. The HOA is the board of homeowners and tenants in the community who oversee the finances of the HOA and make sure that everything is okay in the community. It’s the role of the HOA management company to handle any issues that come up. Let’s say you live in a condominium complex. You’re the president of the HOA, and a tenant in the building has just told you that water is leaking into their unit from the unit above them. You should not be the person who handles this issue, because that’s going to take up valuable time that you don’t have. Instead, you should have an outside community property management company that you work with that handles these types of issues. All you do is pass along that information to the management company, and then they call someone they know to come by and resolve the issue. These companies have a ton of contacts in the construction and repair industries, and they’ll know of a company they can call right away and that will come by and fix the leak.

Although many HOA presidents feel the need to fix every issue themselves, it’s better if that work is outsource to a professional HOA management company like ACCU, Inc. These companies are full of trained professionals who spend their working days resolving issues for HOAs across your city. They’ll be able to handle the issue more efficiently and effectively than you ever could, and they’ll also free up your time so you can do the other important things in your life.
