We know all HOA’s need help now and then so to better serve the different needs of HOA’s, ACCU, Inc. offers two levels of consulting to your HOA. The first is a cafeteria style menu where you may choose help in a specific area; meetings, inspections, Rules and Regulations, budgeting and accounting. When you select one of these areas, our Consultant will work closely with the Board of Directors to maximize the benefits of our experience. The payments for the cafeteria style may be spread out over three months to allow the Boards financial flexibility. Below is an outline of the consulting services offered. You may combine individual services together to obtain the level of service your association needs.
Our comprehensive program which incorporates all the items below is set up with a hard hitting 6 months. In this time frame, your consultant will attend Board of Directors meetings; make inspections of the property for common areas and amenities as well as Architectural and Covenant control.
