HOA Accounting and Consulting Services

At ACCU, Inc., we leverage our extensive experience to offer a range of unique and adaptable consulting services tailored to the specific needs of your Homeowners Association (HOA). We understand that every HOA may require assistance from time to time, and to better serve the diverse needs of HOAs, ACCU, Inc. provides two distinct levels of HOA consulting services.

Our Cafeteria- Style Menu

Our first option is a customizable cafeteria-style menu, allowing you to select the precise areas where your HOA needs support. Whether it's meetings, inspections, Rules and Regulations, or budgeting and accounting, our experienced Consultants will collaborate closely with your Board of Directors to maximize the benefits of our expertise. What sets us apart is our flexibility; we offer the option to spread payments over three months to provide your Board with financial flexibility. We want to help you create a tailored package that perfectly suits your association's requirements.

Comprehensive 6- Month Program

For a more comprehensive solution, our all-inclusive program spans a rigorous six-month period. During this time, your dedicated consultant will attend Board of Directors meetings, conduct property inspections for common areas and amenities, oversee Architectural and Covenant control, and review your Rules and Regulations and Design Guidelines to ensure alignment with your Governing Documents and State law.

If your HOA doesn't have these documents in place, ACCU, Inc. can assist in creating clear and enforceable Rules and Regulations. Additionally, your consultant will aid in preparing bid specifications, reviewing work completed by external contractors, and collaborating with your insurance company in case of claims during the contract term. They will also evaluate the effectiveness of your HOA Delinquency Policy and review your budget, income, and expenditures, offering valuable recommendations. We even offer assistance with budget preparations and the Budget Ratification meeting. Your consultant will also review your Agendas, Minutes, and Newsletter to ensure these documents effectively communicate essential information to homeowners.

Ongoing Support

After the initial six-month period, we won't simply walk away. You'll have continued access to your consultant for the next six months, enabling you to seek guidance whenever necessary. Your consultant will attend your Annual Meeting or any other Members Meeting and collaborate with you to produce a budget. In case of an insurance claim during the initial period, we'll be there to guide you through the process.

At ACCU, Inc., we recognize that HOAs often require assistance but are unsure where to turn. Attorneys can be costly for a check-up, and other management companies may push for complete management contracts. That's where our programs shine. We work as partners with your HOA to propel it forward, fostering close collaboration with your Board of Directors, contractors, and residents. Understanding the budget constraints of HOAs, we offer a flexible payment structure, working with your association for six months while spreading payments over 12 months. This approach allows you to benefit from our experience while staying within budget.

- Recycling Programs: ACCU supports the establishment of comprehensive recycling programs within the community. This includes providing residents with information on what can be recycled and organizing collection events.
