HOAs deal with teens looking for summer jobs

Brings back memories of my childhood where we offered to shovel snow off the driveway or rake up the leaves back in Massachusetts. My granddaughter was selling her paintings in my association community. I don’t know if I have a rabbit to pull out of my hat to satisfy everybody.

Termination of HOA is complicated

The termination of a homeowner association is complicated. Sections pertaining to termination include Nevada Revised Statute 116.2118, NRS 116.21183 and NRS 116.21185. First, an association may be terminated only by agreements of the units owners to whom at least 80 percent of the votes are allocated or any larger percentage the declaration (CCRs) specifies.

If things as commonplace as these are now gone, how do you run a business during so much turmoil? Let’s take a look at the mortgage business.
