After a heated budget meeting with a client last night, I'm realizing how important it is for associations to create Rules & Regulations that spell out in non-legalese how their individual association functions. The Declaration & By-Laws are not easy to read if you've never seen such a document before (or you're not an attorney!). Boards need a way to better communicate this information to all owners to help everyone understand how a condominium association functions and particularly how their association functions. They also need to better understand the documents themselves.
I encourage all associations to work with an attorney to help interpret their governing documents and make them more accessible to everyone. It will cut down on a lot of conflict and get everyone on the same page.
