Diversified Association Management want to make sure our residents enjoy this beautiful season as much as possible. Managing Homeowner Associations in the winter months is quite different from managing in the warmer months of the year. The snow and freezing temperatures add many challenges to HOA’s.
Snow removal is extremely important to our homeowner’s. Everyone still has to get to work safely and on-time. It is our board’s top priority to make sure the roads and sidewalks remain snow and ice free as much as possible. Check with your manager to find out what the HOA’s responsibility is when it comes to snow and ice removal. The HOA/homeowner’s responsibility can change from association to association. For example, the board may have adopted a rule that states the HOA will begin shoveling within 24 hours after the snow has stopped falling but only if there is more than 3 inches of snow. Anything less than 3 inches is the homeowner’s responsibility to remove. This is just an example, so please be sure to contact your community manager to find out the rule in your neighborhood.
Winter also brings some bitter cold temperatures. It is extremely important to take the necessary precautions when we are subjected to freezing temperatures.
