Ensuring Fair Owner Contributions for Property Maintenance


Consider that each month, a residence owner “uses up” an equivalent of a month’s worth of pavement, the pool, the roofs, etc.   The resident’s contribution to the Reserve should be in an amount equal to what they “use up”. 

We help you determine fair contribution levels by:

  1. Studying relevant sections of your legal documents to determine Association responsibilities.
  2. Quantifying those items during visits to the property.
  3.  Assigning a value and life expectancy for all items.
  4. Determining contributions needs to prepare for the replacement and repair of such items.
  5. Provide a report that:     
  • Explain the purpose of the Reserve Fund.
  •  Evaluate the present condition of the Reserve Fund.
  • Discuss the assorted items covered by the Reserve.
  • Creates spreadsheet documentation showing:

– The timetable for repairs and

– The funding required of the owners.

Expertise with Huie Services

Client’s needs and approaches can vary widely depending on their individual business interests. Some Associations use their Capital Reserve Fund as a “slush fund” to cover deficits in their operating budget. Others use their Reserves for specific additions or improvements.
