New Year’s Resolutions

new-year-resolution_pic_1-15-19ver-2 It’s not too late to make a New Year’s resolution. After all, most people have already broken theirs, so being a few days behind is no big deal!

Here are a few goals to consider for your community in 2019:

Meet with your general counsel.NowackHoward’s retainer includes a complimentary meeting with the Board of Directors. It’s a great opportunity to review roles and responsibilities and to discuss your objectives for the New Year.

Tackle delinquencies.Now is a great time to review your homeowners’ accounts and formulate a game plan to address delinquencies. Our collections team can help prioritize collections and tailor an approach for every budget.

Review your governing documents.A periodic review of your Declaration, Bylaws and Rules and Regulations is a great way to re-familiarize yourself with your community’s controlling authority and to see what needs updating. In particular, many of our clients have passed leasing amendments lately to better address Airbnb, VRBO and short-term leasing.

Establish committees.  As the saying goes, “it takes a village,” so draft volunteers to help you research new vendors, plan your pool season and complete big projects.  Getting your neighbors involved is a great way to save time, gain valuable insight and build community spirit. 

Good luck and Happy New Year!
