I am hosting the fourth in a series of “Condo Smarts” workshops that help condominium owners negotiate through the myriad of challenges they face in these uncertain economic times. The workshop takes placeTuesday, October 15th, 7:00 p.m., at Eyes on the Future Annex, 7004 N. Clark (just north of Lunt).
Tuesday’s topic is “Effective Assessment Collection without Litigation.” Condo associations depend on assessments for the proper maintenance of their buildings. When owners fail to pay assessments, associations may not be able to meet their financial obligations, which in turn puts the building in jeopardy.
Hear from a panel of experts help you fulfill your fiduciary responsibilities. Learn how to collect monthly assessments effectively, and what steps to take when things go wrong.
Ebony Lucas, attorney for The Property Law Group will describe the assessments collections process, including when your association should take action, and how those actions work. Many times, failure to pay assessments on the part of an owner can stem from a dispute with another owner or the condo board.
Ed Sacks, housing mediator with the RADR program of the Center for Conflict Resolution, will provide tools for effective dispute resolution. Between these two experts, you should have all the tools to keep your condo association running smoothly.
Also, mark your calendar for an upcoming workshop on bed bugs, an increasing problem for tenants, landlords and condominium associations. The workshop will take place on Wednesday, October 23rd, 6:30 p.m., at the Field School auditorium, 7019 N. Ashland (use Lunt entrance).
