Chapter Manager Education Courses

CAI's chapter manager education is a series of seminars for community association managers who are interested in furthering their education in the management, governance and maintenance of community associations. Attendees receive three continuing education credits for each class. These credits will help satisfy the education requirements to achieve CAI's PCAM designation and to maintain the CMCA certification and AMS designation.

October 7, 2014: Common or Private: Who's Responsible and Who Pays?

Community associations and owners are often at odds as to who is responsible, and who pays, for maintenance and upkeep of various elements within a community association regime. Proper communication to all owners as well as an understanding of your governing documents will provide clarity on these issues. This program will review the definition of common, limited common, and private elements in community associations with a look at insurance and legal implications, including scenarios and real life examples.

Insurance coverage of common areas and the determination of responsibility when damage from a common element affects a private unit will be covered as well as what happens when damage from one unit affects an adjacent unit. Exterior issues such as landscaping that impacts neighboring units will be addressed as well. The speakers will look at what happens when the declaration or bylaws are inadvertently silent regarding a condo maintenance issue and whether a condo association has the right to control which contractor performs work on limited common element repairs. Finally, the session will cover notifying new owners of their responsibilities under the governing documents and what information should be included in re-sale packages to accomplish this goal.
