HOA MEETING, 4/22/2020

In Attendance: Mike, Bob, Jesse, Gigi & Robert T

Discussed questions to ask the lawyer:

  • Implementation – must be approved by 75% homeowners. 
    • Initial recommendation by the lawyer was to write a letter and mail to homeowners (HO) and assist the Board with HO questions.
    • Cost varies depending on how much time is expended. Lawyer’s email forwarded to Board Jan. 30, 2020 puts typical cost for amendments to be in the range of $2,500 – $4,000 depending on the number of revisions recommended. Board will ask for a quote.
    • Completion date (how long would it take to complete?)
  • Virtual meeting or conference call with the attorney?  When?
