What do Property Managers Do?
Enforcing Community Rules and Regulations
An HOA manager is typically involved in drafting and enforcing community rules and regulations. These rules govern behaviors that are intended to help maintain a visually appealing neighborhood while protecting property values. Rules and regulations usually govern landscaping and home maintenance requirements; on-street parking; building additions; and exterior home appearance. An HOA manager monitors community activities, hears complaints from homeowners, and investigates and resolves issues.
Managing Dispute Resolution
An HOA manager mediates disputes and conflicts between neighbors in the community he manages. For example, she may investigate and handle complaints about excessive noise, encroachment on property lines or violation of rules. The manager may work directly with the homeowners in question to mediate a resolution, or notify offending parties by mail. An HOA manager may issue fines against non-compliant homeowners if rules are consistently violated.
Performing or Supervising Maintenance and Upkeep
HOA property management jobs include responsibilities for the general maintenance and upkeep of common areas in a community, such as a lobby or mailroom. A manager may be responsible for maintaining a community's swimming pool, park, tennis courts or sports complex. He may retain a landscaping company to cut grass and care for plants and trees, or oversee a pool-cleaning company that performs routine chemical checks. A manager must inspect and ensure that neighborhood equipment, lighting and gates are all in good working order. The manager may personally perform maintenance duties, rely on and supervise hired staff, or hire outside contractors.
Handling Other Responsibilities
An HOA manager handles the financial matters of the HOA he manages, including the collection of association fees from residents, and the payment of expenses, such as insurance, payroll, and invoices from services contractors. According to RealManage, an HOA property management company, HOA managers tend to work closely with a council or board comprised of community members who live in the neighborhood or building. These board members help facilitate neighborhood meetings; keep residents up to date on changes to rules and regulations; and serve as unofficial internal representatives of the management company. The HOA manager may conduct annual elections to select new board members.
