This week in Community Association Management

That lovin’ feeling

As with any long term relationship, continuous nurturing is required. This concept applies not only to personal relationships but to professional ones as well! Andrea Drennen from TOPS Software, provides some great advice on how to keep the love alive between you and your long term clients!

Retaining Good Tenants

I may have to send this article to my property manager! This fantastic infographic show you exactly how to ensure your best tenants don’t fly the coop! I’ll take that rent discount, please!

Now You're Talking Crazy

Work as a property manager can sometimes feel very mundane on a day to day basis. However, from time to time, you will have the ‘pleasure’ of evicting a crazy tenant and end up with a great story to tell to all of your friends. Like this next ‘tail’ about a man being forcefully evicted from his residence. After much debate with the police officer, he abruptly bolted from the unit with two dead frozen felines in tow. You just can’t make up stories like these!

Just didn’t see it coming!

An interesting case out of South Florida has left a psychic and her partner full of questions… ironic, right? After their application for renting a property was neither approved nor denied for an extended period of time, they began to question the reasons behind the delay. They are now demanding to know if their ‘in limbo’ application is based on their self-employment status or if they are dealing with a case of racial discrimination.

This one’s for you, AZ!

Is your community a landlord in Arizona? Then this article is for you! This article does a great job of summarizing some of the most essential Arizona landlord-tenant laws. Hope it’s helpful!

Neighborhood Winery

The Supreme Court recently upheld the right for a Virginia homeowner to keep their vineyard and winery business in their HOA. Now, that's my kind of neighbor! I wonder if there are any homes for sale in this HOA?
