* Single-family Subdivisions * Townhouse and Cluster Developments * Mobile Homeowners Associations * Master Community Associations A homeowners association is designed to preserve the common welfare and the property values of the community. In a properly operated community, it does. In a poorly run community, it does not. The proper operating procedures are not difficult, but they are often overlooked or misunderstood. This manual provides a step-by-step explanation of the requirements for meetings, membership voting, and the necessary parliamentary procedures. It serves as a guide to help ensure that the association carries out its responsibilities fairly and effectively. You will learn: * the concept and purpose of a homeowners association * the rights and responsibilities of individual owners * how to run effective meetings * what documents you need for meetings * the rules of procedure and proper decorum * the role of the board of directors * the role of committees * how to set a budget and deal with finances and insurance * how to amend and enforce documents In addition to the comprehensive text, there are twenty-eight forms and sample documents--all you need to run an effective homeowners association.

Your Home is Your Castle was written by Richard Blumenfeld as a manual for those interested in the management of residential homeowner associations. Years ago, developers saw homeowner associations as troublesome components of their primary function to build and successfully sell housing. The popularity of homeowner associations forced developers to rethink their philosophy and include associations as a part of their offering. Unfortunately, many do not understand the complexity of homeowner associations. Developers take shortcuts and the results are often disaster. Homeowners feel secure that their homeowner association will protect their home’s values and enhance their quality of life. However, they seldom understand their responsibilities and the work that goes into making an HOA a success. Homeowner associations must be operated as a business, and there is no room for personal agendas. Understanding of case law applicable to homeowner associations is mandatory. Do owners read their Declaration of Covenants and do they understand the bylaws of their community? Do developers strive to create a set of HOA documents that are appropriate for their homeowners? Your Home is Your Castle is a common sense road map that can be followed by developers, homeowners, management companies, and those considering entering the HOA management business.
