What to Expect
Grace Property Services will cater our services to meet your community association’s specific needs. Our experience in the community association industry over the years has allowed Grace Property Services staff to work with any style or size of property. As a board member you can expect accurate accounting of the association’s funds, dedicated staff to solve any owner’s concerns and a commitment to help the board maintain your community as a desirable place to live.
Grace’s CFO Alex Jacobs attended the CAI (Community Associations Institute) 2018 Law Seminar this year. This seminar is a great resource for staying on top of the changing legal standards surrounding community associations. It’s important to Grace that our staff is up to date on all topics that can affect our associations. We will work with your association attorneys to best advise your boards on their day to day decisions.
Some of the topics covered at the seminar include:
Assistance and Emotional Support Animals. These can be a sensitive topic in many associations. No one wants to make life more difficult for someone struggling with a disability, but owners may not be aware that it’s not only dogs that can be used for support. Every situation is different, and boards should be aware of needing to work with the attorneys to ensure that every owner can enjoy the facilities.
Third Party Liability laws have changed, altering when a board may need to intervene in an owner to owner conflict. We will be bringing suggested policies to future meetings.
The seminar also discussed strategies for associations dealing with hoarders, and the importance of collections policies.
The seminar was held in Palm Springs, California (a real hardship to travel to in February from Ohio). Many of our association’s attorneys were also present at the seminar, ensuring that they are also on top of the topics that affect your community.
