Check out these topics and more, and don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook to get real time updates on these issues and others!

Our featured article, “Designation of Primary Occupant,” discusses how associations can ensure their screening process isn’t circumvented.

When a community has an entrance gate, it is almost inevitable that the association will at some point deal with the issue of whether it is responsible for damage to a vehicle which occurred when someone was entering or exiting the gate. Find out more in, “Is Your HOA Gate Opening to Increased Liability?”

Guest Columnist, Gary Schaaf, answers your real estate FAQs in, “Property Damage and Falls: When Things Go Wrong.”

Lastly, what happens to unpaid assessments owed to the association when a first mortgagee forecloses is the subject of this month’s“THIS CASE: Coral Lakes Community Association, Inc. v. Busey Bank, N.A.”
