Most condominium association’s “Declaration of the Condominium” (hereinafter referred to as declaration) follow the wording of Chapter 47C of the North Carolina Condominium Act with regard to the definitions of “common elements” and “units”. The Declaration specifies what insurance is to be provided by the association and what insurance is to be provided by the unit owners.In the statute, 47C-2-102, Unit boundaries it says: “Except as provided by the declaration:

Why Do I Have To Pay For A Resale Package?
We have many homeowners who think that because they pay assessments every month they should not have to pay for a resale package. They are of the opinion that it is a bunch of pages all put together that just sits and waits for us to “push the button” when they place their order.
I would like to clarify why it is essential that management companies prepare these documents individually for each owner. First, it is a legal document required by law in many states as it protects the buyer from purchasing into a community association without first obtaining “full disclosure”. It contains a disclosure statement that includes the legal or pending legal status of litigation involving the association. It contains up-to-the-minute information about the assessments owed, outstanding special assessments and even pending assessments as required in many states. It provides the association’s financial status and any outstanding loans owed by the association. It also provides any covenants restrictions or violations on the unit. All of these questions are answered and are entered in real time by a staff member when the order is placed. The document is not static; it requires keen oversight as the questions are researched and completed.
Many owners may receive notice from their Bank or Mortgage Company each year requesting a certificate of insurance to provide proof of coverage. Upon contacting the management company, many of you have been charged a small fee for obtaining this information, and are upset and/or confused by this process.

I like the professionalism of Community Association Management and the reporting. our Portfolio Manager is great! Good to work with and responsive. I also like Community Association Management being involved with legislative issues.
“I would like to thank Community Association Management for the fine job this past year. We had our annual meeting and our Property Manager did an excellent job covering the meeting. As I told the new board and the members present, I feel my finest achievement this past year was to bring your organization on board to be our management partner. Thank you again for making my second year as president easier and more rewarding.”
“Community Association Management is a solutions provider that enables HOA Boards to run efficiently and effectively. Their service is off the charts and their depth of knowledge and experience are invaluable.”
In the past, we felt like we did not get much support due to our size or the lack of effort from the person handling our account. I do not feel that way with Community Association Management. Our Property Manager has been very active in what we are trying to accomplish in our community and providing us with a variety of options. We are currently going through trying to figure out what to do about our roofing situation. The manager provided us good options and now we are in the process of startin… Read more
Every time I’ve contacted someone about an issue, they’ve responded almost immediately, even if it was something they could not help with. When the issue is something that is the responsibility of the property management company, it’s always been resolved very quickly. Our past property management company was horrible to deal with so the past year with Community Association Management has been a pleasure.
“Community Association Management is extremely thorough and knowledgeable in their approach to business. They are also very timely in their communications. They have saved our community a lot of money. When they first approached us and told us how much we could save by working with them, we thought the promise was ‘too good to be true’. They have more than delivered on that promise and more.”
Let me also say what a pleasure it is to call the office and be greeted by happy, helpful people who care about the service they provide!
I honestly do not have the vocabulary to describe how much Community Association Management means to our community, and what a wonderful Job you do for our community. You treat us like we are the only community you manage. We feel so taken care of and well run. Thank you!
6 yrs ago Community Association Management helped bail us out from insolvency to today’s successful surplus balance ! Community Association Management took the legal actions required to resolve our long uncollected debts – and acquire paying owners. Resolution of financial disputes required a professional mediator – and the prior management company not only failed at that task – they gave other “bad” advice that resulted in deficit budgets. Community Association Management has given “good” advic… Read more
I am writing this letter to tell other HOAs about the effort and dedication KDK Property Management (now part of Community Association Management) displayed while helping the Heritage Townhome community improve the parking situation in our community. The Orange County planning department approved the builder’s plans without ensuring adequate parking was available for the thirty units in our community. Soon after becoming the property manager for our community, your team began the quest to cor… Read more
