We adhere to strict guidelines to make sure there is always enough in the HOA reserves.

Rule 559.511 of the MA state administrative code requires association co-owners to maintain a reserve fund equal to 10% of the association’s current annual budget on a non-cumulative basis, at a minimum.

Not only is important to have reserves set aside for repairs and updates, it’s the law.

Section 559.205 requires condominiums to maintain a reserve fund for major repairs and replacements of common elements.

Frequently Asked Questions

Living in an HOA (Homeowners Association) community offers a hands-off living experience, where the maintenance of grounds, exteriors, and common areas is managed by the association, freeing residents from these responsibilities. Additionally, HOA dues often include access to a variety of amenities that enhance lifestyle and recreational opportunities. These amenities can range from clubhouses, gyms, and recreational areas to specialized facilities like movie & meeting rooms, swimming pools, and even golf courses. This arrangement can be particularly appealing for those seeking a community-oriented lifestyle with the convenience of on-site amenities.

Common rules and regulations enforced by HOAs typically include guidelines around parking, noise levels, construction activities, moving procedures, the use of storage areas, and the utilization of common areas. These rules are put in place to maintain the aesthetic appeal, safety, and overall harmony within the community, ensuring that all residents enjoy a pleasant living environment. By adhering to these regulations, members contribute to the well-being and orderly management of their HOA community.

In Massachusetts, HOA (Homeowners Association) fees can vary widely, with a range that might extend from as low as $0 to as high as $2,500, depending largely on the type and extent of amenities offered and any prior assessments. These fees are pivotal in covering a broad spectrum of services and facilities that enhance the living experience within the community. Typically, HOA fees go towards the maintenance of common areas and the exteriors of buildings, ensuring that landscaping is kept pristine, and providing for the removal of snow during the winter months. Additionally, these fees often include utilities such as heat and water, contributing to the overall comfort of residents. Security measures are also funded through HOA fees, offering residents peace of mind. Beyond these practical aspects, the fees support a variety of amenities, such as clubhouses, gyms, pools, and recreational areas, which enrich the community’s lifestyle.

When an HOA member violates the community’s rules, the consequences depend on the specific regulations outlined in the condominium documents. Generally, the initial response to a violation involves issuing warnings to the member, providing an opportunity to rectify the situation. If the violation persists or is of a serious nature, the HOA may impose fines. These steps are designed to ensure compliance with the community’s standards and maintain the quality of living for all residents. The exact process and penalties can vary from one HOA to another, reflecting the community’s unique guidelines and governance structure.

Yes, HOAs can impose special assessments, which are quite common in managing a community. Just like with owning a home, unexpected expenses can pop up that weren’t planned for in the budget. A well-run HOA will have a reserve fund saved up for these unexpected costs. However, if there isn’t enough money saved or if the reserve fund is empty when an unexpected expense arises—like for maintenance issues, legal fees, or other sudden costs—the HOA may need to ask its members to pay a special assessment. This helps the HOA cover these expenses and keep the community running smoothly.
