    About This Meeting:

    Unlike investor-owned buildings, condominiums rely entirely on a funding model of individual owner assessments for maintenance and repair. The law requires that portions of these assessments be sequestered in a reserve fund for future repairs. We have represented community associations for forty years and for at least the last twenty-five years we have compiled data that shows many reserve funds are substantially underfunded for repair of reserve line item components. This problem is made worse when previously undetected damage is discovered. This situation is sometimes solved through special assessments or bank loans, but some associations are reaching the point where adequate funding is no longer available from any source. As funding diminishes, repairs are minimized, and the condition of the buildings deteriorates eventually reaching a point where continued habitability is questionable.  

    The design professional, reserve analyst, or reconstruction expert faces these issues every time they survey an older condominium building and catalogue the necessary repairs. Prioritizing repairs based on available funding and where critical structures cannot be properly repaired, the question of obsolescence arises. How does the professional advise the owners of these conditions, and what recommendations can they provide? At what point does obsolescence make further repairs futile and what alternatives are available to the owners?  

    This presentation is based on forty years of representing community associations and compiling data on their condition and the condition of their funding. It is based twenty five years of writing about this topic and representing communities approaching obsolescence in my practice. It is also based on my knowledge of the fiduciary responsibilities that Boards of Directors and community manager have to sustain the property over time for the benefit of future owners.

      Learning Objectives:  

    1. The funding and maintenance obligations of a condominium association and how that is different than apartments and other investment properties.

      2. How to recognize condominium building obsolescence and what causes it.  

    3. Understanding the options available for a project which is nearing obsolescence. 

    If registering after the Monday before the meeting, please call Maria at (916) 485-6350 to register. Registrations after the Monday before the meeting and walk-ins will be assessed an additional $10 charge, have no guarantee of a meal choice, and given a white meal ticket.
