The Association is a legally recognized Non-Profit Corporation. As such, there are many requirements that must be fulfilled to avoid putting the members at unnecessary financial risk. Utilizing a property management firm to handle the Associations business, saves money by not having to pay for and maintain an actual office and hire employees directly. A management company can provide the multiple different functions that one person alone would simply not be able to do. They also provide advice and expertise on the various issues and laws that the Association must comply with.
