Fraud and mismanagement of HOAs and COAs run rampant in Florida. Boards and unit owners should avoid being deceived into a false sense of security. Utilizing straightforward checks and balances can prevent most incidents.

How do you rate YOUR HOA? The first indicator may be a feeling of something’s just not right.

Then begins the numerous complaints from homeowners about financial matters or management practices. As pressure builds, the Board of Directors begins to show disregard for member input or concerns regarding financial issues. When that happens, it’s time to check the following 10 signs to see if a further investigation may be needed.

  1. FINANCIAL IRREGULARITIES:

Unexplained or frequent financial discrepancies in the association’s records.

Missing or altered financial documents, such as bank statements or invoices.

 

  1. LACK OF TRANSPARENCY:

Refusal to provide financial information to homeowners.

Limited access to association financial records for members.

 

  1. UNAPPROVED EXPENDITURES:

Significant expenses that were not approved by the HOA board or members.

Personal expenses charged to the HOA, such as luxury items or vacations.

 

  1. OVERLY SECRETIVE MANAGEMENT:

Unwillingness to share information about the association’s financial health.

Lack of transparency in decision-making processes.

 

  1. CONFLICTS OF INTEREST:

Board members or property managers benefit personally from association contracts or decisions.

Hiring of companies or individuals with close ties to board members without a proper bidding process.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s crucial to address your concerns promptly. Consider consulting with a lawyer, conducting an audit, or bringing the issues to the attention of the appropriate authorities or regulatory bodies overseeing HOAs in your area. Again, transparency and accountability are keys to preventing most incidents.
