Community Association Managers, Florida

FAQ

Why hire a Florida Community Association Manager?

A Florida Community Association Manager - CAM - can help your condominium association or HOA comply with fiduciary responsibilities and laws. But the advantage of a CAM's continuing education does not stop with compliance:

  • CAM's can often find volume discounts because they manage multiple associations.
  • Professional training equips managers to deal with difficult residents and to be prepared for natural disasters.
  • A responsible Florida Community Association Manager is trained about insurance issues and how they relate to your condominium association or HOA, i.e. sufficient property coverage for replacement, waiver of subrogation from contractors, general liablity issues, etc.
  • A properly educated Condominium Association Manager is familiar with all relevant aspects of governance
  • An experienced CAM knows what needs to be done for quality maintenance and how much different functions should cost.
  • A very important issue for a condominium association is determining what is an appropriate amount of money to hold in reserves - a good Florida CAM is trained to help.
  • A Florida community Association Manager should be familiar with rules and enforcement, legal, budgeting, applicable filings, timely communication and contracts.
Hiring a qualified professional community association manager for your Florida Condominium Association is a prudent way to make sure these issues are properly addressed. Creation of professionally created reports is important to successful operation of a board.
