PURPOSE OF THE CAHOA

The purpose of the California Association of Homeowners Associations is to provide Community Associations, Condominiums and Common Interest Developments,’ Boards of Directors and Homeowners with complete, comprehensive and professional information pertaining to this industry. We are assisting Boards of Directors with information and solutions to their problems which they may not be able to provide for themselves.

NEEDS OF ASSOCIATIONS

The needs of “Community Associations” are unique: cost of insurance, utilities, maintenance and other budget items continue to increase. In recent years this has resulted in a substantial increase in association dues. Dues go up, costs go up, but for many associations, reserves are not able to keep up with the demand, and in the meantime, our community associations continue to get older which in turn requires more maintenance and additional costs and the cycle continues. On the other hand, many homeowners such as, those on fixed incomes, first time buyers and homeowners concerned with selling their units are interested in keeping dues as low as possible.
