Your community is like your house. If you lose a homeowner’s trust or belief in your community’s leadership it’s like a small crack in the foundation of your house.  And, if you continue to lose...

The year is almost over.  Not only is it time to consider some resolutions for 2015, but it’s also time to reflect on 2014. What did you celebrate? What did you learn? Any disasters…and how did you handle them? Any progress on your goals?

It’s great time to reflect with purpose, so you can prepare for the year to come. To that end, we looked back on what our readers were interested...

Just kidding.  Playing through the scenario, though, what if being “elected” to the board was like being called for jury duty?  Homeowners’ names are fed into a machine.  Then every couple of years, a button gets pushed, a ticket pops out, and bam: YOUR name is on it.  Time to serve.  (Unless you’...

Oftentimes, a board is responsible for a million dollar or more budget.

I don’t get it.  We are bombarded with new laws being imposed to promote and encourage new condominium development but then a book entitled Escaping Condo Jail comes out explaining how condominiums are not the answer to the American dream because of the high risks involved.  As soon as I read the book I’m sure I’ll have more to say on whether...

While we have heard a lot about the Lakewood ordinance dealing with efforts to curtail construction defect lawsuits, little has been written about the Town of Parker ordinance also attempting to control defect suits by condominium associations.  On November 3, 2014 the Town of Parker approved Ordinance No. 3.286.2 which adds Section 13.07....
