Maintaining the common area in a homeowner's association is one of the HOA board's most important responsibilities. Landscape maintenance requires consistent upkeep. It's usually in the board's best interest to contract with a professional company to provide landscape maintenance services in order to save on cost and have consistency within the look of the community.
In homeowner’s associations, you and every board member are considered a fiduciary and are duty bound to act in the best interests of all residents, not your own best interests.
Homeowners associations often have to hire new contractors to do work for them. It may be for a new roof on the community center, repairs to a park, overlaying streets or for some other purpose. When your Association is considering hiring a new contractor, knowing what questions to ask them is vital in these situations.
One of the stated goals of a homeowners association is to oversee the upkeep of common areas in the community, such as clubhouses, pools, fitness rooms, and parks. When choosing contractors to maintain and repair community property it is imperative to choose a licensed contractor to perform the work. Unlicensed contractors put the homeowners association at risk for a myriad of problems that could arise.
