Q: Are there any requirements for a potluck that would be held at the community clubhouse? I received three conflicting opinions.
Per Nevada Revised Statutes 116.31086, bids must be opened and read during the board meeting. Technically, the board could disqualify the vendor’s bid.
Unless your governing documents state otherwise, hot water heaters are the personal property of the homeowners. Technically, the homeowners are monitoring them and are replacing them when needed, somewhere around seven years, if they are being properly maintained. At 10 years of age, you definitely need to replace your hot water heater.
We recently looked into adding an official dog park to our community with separate sections for large and small dogs. In the end we did not proceed. Here are the main reasons:
Reserve specialists are supporting the use of the reserve funds allocated for landscaping to help address the changes to the landscape as mandated by the Southern Nevada Water Authority.
Associations that are conducting their meetings online do have a responsibility to improve their technology.
Under Nevada Revised Statutes 116.3108 (2), you would need a signed petition by at least 10 percent of your homeowners calling for a recall meeting.
Yes, both your association and your master association will be required to maintain cyber-security insurance.
Under Nevada Revised Statutes 116.3106, a removal election may be called by the owners constituting at least 10 percent or any lower percentage specified in the bylaws of the total number of voting members of the association.
Q: I live in a large community in Las Vegas. Recently the HOA pressured a homeowner to remove a rainbow flag. Can a resident asked to remove a flag refuse when “the other side” is allowed?
There is no excuse for inappropriate behavior. To disagree is your right. Being obnoxious is not.
The problem begins with your board of directors. Management companies cannot just establish charges for late fees and violation letters unless your board agrees to these charges.
Try to set a meeting with the board to reach some compromise. If the treehouse does not violate the architectural guidelines, it should be approved based upon those documents.
Your association should have trespassing signs posted by the entrances to your community. You can advise homeowners to call 311 for assistance with the police department to remove trespassers from the community. You may consider hiring a security service to patrol the community, even if it is just a roving guard that comes through the community during a 24-hour period to remove the transients prior to them calling the police department for assistance.
Homeowners should absolutely avoid beginning an architectural project unless they receive written approval from their HOA board. When you don’t receive a formal written approval, unwanted consequences occur.
