Home-sharing and short-term rentals have substantially increased over the last decade since websites like Airbnb.com have come of age. Short-term rental services work by connecting people looking for places to stay for one to three nights with homeowners who are willing to rent their home or a section of their properties. The phenomenon is proven to be successful and does not look to go away at all. It’s also important to note that since it’s a free market with no industry standards, there are no government or organizational regulations placed upon it at this time.

One of the most critical tasks you can perform as a board member is to create policies for your HOA and then consistently enforce them. HOA regulations need to be adhered to by all members including the board members. Failure to implement policies leads to chaos and tension in the organization. It can also lead to lawsuits and conflict that would otherwise be unnecessary. If you need help developing policies, including financial matters such as fees and expenses, Gassen can help you define the regulations and enforce them as required. Contact our office today for a consultation.

There are many reasons for this, but one of the most important reasons is that we take ownership of our neighborhoods.

A responsible tenant helps establish healthy business relationships with property owners and managers. You can feel confident that the rent will be paid on time and the property will be properly maintained. A lousy tenant, on the other hand, will create a stressful relationship and make you regret your decision.

One of the biggest headaches you deal with is tenants who don’t pay their rent on time or not at all. Even though your property management company has created a straightforward rent agreement and has set a system in place to ensure timely payments, some renters do not adhere to the guidelines.

HOAs present a broad spectrum of challenges and issues that arise due to conflicts between members and board members. No matter how great your HOA is, there will always be situations that arise in which people disagree. For this reason, HOAs and other organizations must draw up contracts to get everyone on the same page.
