Topic: GeneralSuggested title: What is a Community Association?
Some residents think homeowners and condominium associations (generally called community associations) exist just to tell them what to do—or not do. Actually, the association is more like a housing management or service-delivery organization that provides three types of services to all residents—owners and renters alike
Providing these services requires good management (whether carried out by a professional manager or a self-managing board of home owners), strong planning and organization, and carefully monitoring the association's affairs. It isn't easy, but by fairly and effectively delivering these services, community associations protect and enhance the value of individual homes and lenders' interests in those homes.
