* 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.

Everyone wants to get as many amenities as possible when buying a home, but is buying a property that requires you to join a homeowner association the best option? In some states, close to 20 percent of homes belong to homeowner associations. They enforce neighborhood standards and assume responsibilities that local government is unwilling or unable to handle. You’ll learn exactly how they operate and evaluate their pros and cons in this informational guidebook written by C.J. Klug, who has been involved with homeowner associations for more than twenty-five years. Klug examines a wide range of HOA-related topics, including • why HOAs were created and different HOA types; • what factors to consider when deciding whether to join an HOA; • what HOAs do and how they function; • answers to commonly asked questions; • operating guidelines for HOAs. Don’t be among the buyers who fail to realize that joining a homeowner association locks you into a contractual relationship. Whether you are an investor or someone who is ready to live in a new home yourself, it’s imperative to understand Homeowner Associations.

I wrote this book to serve as a “primer” on the basics of what you can do to: • Make your personal time on the board more satisfying • Produce value for the homeowners in your HOA • Encourage other homeowners to volunteer to make their HOA a better place to live. This is a “foundation” book. I want you, as a volunteer board member, to have a foundation of knowledge in what a homeowners association is and how it should work. I have seen too many homeowners associations in which new board members have no basic knowledge in association best practices and they get caught up in the emotions of making decisions for their neighbors. Their volunteer time turns in to a frustrating experience and the existing problems persist with the association. With a good foundation, I believe you will be able to learn more about community associations and the common issues that confront them. With this book, you will have an outline that will help you organize your thoughts, build on a solid framework and make your volunteer time valuable to you and to your neighbors.

This book is the first comprehensive study of the political and social issues posed by the rise of common-interest housing developments and their private governments. Tracing the history of this type of housing from the nineteenth century to the present, McKenzie highlights the important but little-understood role public policy has played in advancing this large-scale 'privatization for the few', and he concludes by considering the implications for civil liberties and for politics at all levels of government.
