 October 2020 

Date: 102020 ... Registration for the SNWA Water Resources and Conservation Seminar             

Many of you have taken the Southern Nevada Water Authority class, but many have not.  It is really a good class for your directors and ARC people to take to see how they can help us in the drought time.  Since we have had little rain this year so far, it is only going to get worse and the grass needs to go along with other ways to conserve water.   We live in a desert and need to know that EVERYONE needs to help in our efforts to conserve water.  Can you imagine how you will feel if you didn’t at least try to help the system and it gets really worse.  The link to sign up is below and if you want credits, let me know too so that I can have your certificate ready. 

 

Registration for the SNWA Water Resources and Conservation Seminar

Please register for SNWA Water Resources and Conservation Seminar on Oct 23, 2020 1:00 PM PDT at:  https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2432873295267088142

Date: 101320 ... How many of your Associations that have surveillance camera's have a data storage policy?  Fair Housing class as well. 

 

  1. Because of the Surveillance class being taught by Ed Son recently, the issue came up with the storage of data on the cameras and are they considered “records”.   We asked the Ombudsman’s office and this is what we were told”

 

“Thank you for the email to Mr. Foger. Mr. Foger has stated that the association should come up with it's
own policy for storing camera footage. It really does not fall under the requirements for association records.”

So – if you have surveillance camera’s and don’t have a policy, it needs to be on your next agendas.  

 

  1. Class on Friday – Discrimination Restrictions and Prohibitions 2 hour Nevada Law CE class will be held this Friday, 10/16/20  at 1:00 – CE.0391000 – We talk about the Veteran who filed a Fair Housing claim because the association sent him a letter about his son’s basketball hoop.   It is a good class and taught by Greg Kerr, Esq.  Let me know if you wish to attend, please. It is free.
     

  2. Starting next week, there are a lot of CE classes on Zoom tucked into the pre-licensing classes at Key Realty Schools as well.   I have attached that schedule so that you can see the classes that have credits.  Fall CAM schedule at KEY

Date: 093020 ... Zoom classes over the next 30 days                                                                               

 

One of the classes that people have asked me to redo twice now is the Surveillance Camera class as questions come up about a lot of issues.  One of the big issues is whether you have to keep each of those tapes for 10 years.  Think about it 365 days over a 10 year period and the number of files that must be kept.   Ed Song is the instructor and will be teaching the class.    Here are the classes and their dates.  All will be on Zoom at this point.

The general course information page has been updated: http://www.keyrealtyschool.com/courses/association-management/pre-licensing/

Date: 080620 ...  Pre-Licensing Classes and Two More Good Classes                                                      

  1. Pre-licensing Classes will definitely be held virtually now until the Governor declares that Nevada is out of the emergency status.  That means that anyone taking the Reno or the Las Vegas Pre-licensing classes will sign up with Key Realty Schools and take them on line where Key requires a camera with no exceptions. You sign up with Key Realty Schools who will create a portal where all of the links for the 60 hours will be given.  Let me know if you need the Reno schedule and the Las Vegas Schedule, again please.  I need to have at least 15 people to hold them so please don’t wait to sign up students. 702-313-7000 or http://www.keyrealtyschool.com/enroll/ and scroll down to the bottom for Reno and Law Vegas sign ups.

  2. If you haven't taken this 2 hour CE class yet, Empire Works is holding it again on August 12th at 9 am via Zoom. Learn all about painting projects in CIC's, the RFP process from start to finish, tips to make your lives easier, and what you'll expect to see on property.  Board members are welcome!

 July 2020 

Date: 071520 ... Short Term Rentals from an Insurance Point of View, Architectural Committee Use  Class & Pre-Licensing Classes  

  1. This is just a reminder about the Short Term Rentals From an Insurance Point of View class that is being taught on 7-24-2020 at 1:00 p.m.   It was taught back on 6/30/2020, but not all of you could make it and  many of your directors NEED this class to understand the problem they may encounter when a claim comes up from one of the renters when something happens on the common area.  It is a serious problem.    Please sign up with me and I will get you the link and the materials for the class.  It really is a very good class taught by Ron Wright.

  2. The Two Architectural Committee classes are full now, but we have scheduled it again via zoom on 8/14/2020 at 1:00 p.m. Recommend that your directors and Committee members sign up, please.

  3. It appears that at least until the Governor stops the shutdown that the NRED is allowing virtual classes for the pre-licensing students, which would include the CE classes stuck in the middle of them.  I will get you more information when I get a link, etc., but they start in Reno on August 25th and in Las Vegas on October 7th.  I have attached the two schedules so that you have the dates.

  4. We do the pre-licensing classes in Reno in the daytime, 2 classes a day for 3 days a week.  One is at 9:00 and the other starts at 1:00 , would you like to have the Vegas classes changed that way as well if they are on Zoom?   The Las Vegas classes are currently from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. stretched over a longer period of time. I am trying to make a decision and your input would really help. The 2 tests that are conducted for those classes will be in person at KEY with only under 10 arriving at each specific interval to ensure their safety.  

  5. All ZOOM credit classes will require that attendees be signed in AT LEAST 15 minutes before class starts. The classroom will be turned on at least 30 minutes prior to start of class. Anyone signing in later than 10 minutes after the hour is late and will not get credit. I have to certify to the division that attendees have attended the class for the required length of time. Video must be available for the entire length of the class.

I have five classes to advise you of at this point.  All five  are on ZOOM.

 

  1. The NRED asked me to put the Capital Improvement’s class together for them as managers are making huge mistakes. It was scheduled to be held at the NACM Expo, but WRSS&R had to cancel it because of the firms COVID 19 safety policy.   The class will instead be taught via Zoom instead on 7-29-2020 at 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m..    Let me know if you wish to attend and I can send you the link.
     

  2. Two Discriminatory Restrictions and Prohibitions classes were going to be held on person on 7/23 and 7/24 (Reno and Las Vegas), but got consolidated into one  Zoom for 7/23 at 9:00 a.m.CE.0391000 2 hours Nevada Law credits.  You RSVP with me and I send you the link, please.
     

  3. One of the two new CE Classes are on insurance – Nonprofit Director’s and Officer’s Insurance Policies CE.0296000  on 8/6/2020 at 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  This is being hosted by Lara Knipmeyer - Garrell of GKL Consulting, LLC and to RSVP for this class, please e-mail her at:  larakgarrell@outlook.com
     

  4. The second insurance class is – Types of Insurance in the CIC.  – CE.0295000 1 hour on 8/7/2020 at 1:00 p.m. .  The class is being hosted by Lara Knipmeyer - Garrell of GKL Consulting, LLC  and to RSVP for this class, please e-mail her at : larakgarrell@outlook.com
     

  5. The two Architectural Committee use classes are still on, but the one on the 22nd is full, however, but the one on 7/30/2020 at 1:00 p.m. still has a few spaces left.   7/30/2020  1:00 p.m. If you wish to attend, please RSVP with Lara Knipmeyer - Garrell and you RSVP with Lara Knipmeyer Garrell at larakgarrell@outlook.com CE.0415000 2 hours general credits.

Date: 070620 Update ...  New class - Architectural committees.                                                           

As Architectural Committees are in the top 10 law suits that are forwarded to insurance companies, I created a class on Architectural Committees and Their Use  that will be taught by Ed Song, Esq. with the LKG law firm on 7-22-2020 at 9:00 a.m.   It is a 2 hour ZOOM class.   I have attached the notice that went into the NRED for you to sign up.  You will be sent the link for the class when you sign up with Lara who will be facilitating this for us. We appreciate her doing this. We are limited to 100 so please RSVP ASAP.  Link to NRED Notice

 

I also wanted you to know that I have about 150 statute Booklets left if you need any. Just let me know.

 

I wanted to mention as well that since the NRED changed their minds on the virtual classes through July, the Drought/Water class will be taught on ZOOM for credits now.  Let me know if you wish to attend and I will send you the link when I get it from them. It will be taught on 7-23-2020 at 1:00 p.m. and is a 2 hour CE. class.

Update ... As The Architectural Committee Class is so popular this month, we agreed to set up another date for people to sign up who couldn’t make the July 22nd class at 9:00 a.m. on ZOOM.   The NRED has approved the second posting and it will be taught on 7-30-2020 at 1:00 p.m.  

 

This would be a great time for directors and/or ARC Committee members to sign up as well.  Please let me know as it has been posted on the NRED’s site for 2 hours of credits for managers and it would really help directors/committees to stay out of trouble here in Nevada since everything is so confidential.

 

Lara K Garrell will again send the link as she is facilitating the class for me so that there are no snags since she does such a good job.

 June 2020 

​​

 

Date: 062520 ...  Water Conservation class for directors & Zoom Conversational Discussions.  

 

The 7-23-2020 Water (drought and Clark County)  class will still be taught via Go To Webinar, but will not have credits for CAM’s as the NRED won’t approve them after 6-30-2020 unless we totally resubmit, but we are hoping to get a lot of homeowners and directors to attend.  The City Of Henderson was going to host this in their offices, but are not comfortable with groups in their facility. 

 

Please forward to you boards and they can handle up to 100 so interested homeowners can attend as well virtually. - Please let me know if you are interested in attending as once I get the link I can send to you with the materials. 

 

One last question to those who get this.  How many of the board members and homeowners out there would like free Zoom classes, discussion groups, etc. on topics that are of interest to a lot of people?  It seems to be the perfect venue to get questions answered and  the industry to get issues out to people quickly. Please let me know if this sounds good so that I can get it started.

Date: 060920 ...  For those of you looking for a free and good 2  hour class - New one just post- ed and is a good one.  

On 6-30-2020 at 9:00 a.m. a new 2 hour class will be taught using ZOOM.  It is Short Term Rentals from an Insurance point of view.  Ron Wright will teach it and the last time it was taught in Tahoe (the only time it has been taught) , the room was full and there were many board members and managers in attendance who learned a lot.

 

There are a lot of things that people don’t think about when units are being rented out for the AIRBNB time rentals when the documents don’t allow it.  Ron does a good job over covering the issues that arise and what you need to be aware of in this area.   Let me know if you wish to attend and I will send you the link and the documents, please.

 

I do also have a few statute books left if anyone needs them.  Just let me know.

Date: 060620 ...  August Pre-Licensing CAM Classes ...                                                                             

Because of everything that's going on, I wanted to make sure we had enough students to continue with the Reno Pre-Licensing classes starting on 8-25-2020 at 9:00 a.m. There must be at least 12 committed students signed up by 8/17 before I will commit to do the classes.

 

Please let me know if you will have students attending so I can make plans to hold them or cancel, please. 

 

I have attached the schedule which shows the classes that have CE credits.  The Developer Transition will have credits as well, but it is currently in the NRED for approval.

  May 2020 

 

 

Date: 053020 ...  Classes - Taking and Re-Taking ...                                                                                     

​​

  1. I just got off the phone with Susan Clark, the Licensing Supervisor with the Nevada Real Estate Division.   I wanted clarification on classes and retaking them for reserve study specialists.

    Managers cannot retake the same class during the next licensing period for credits, but the law does not say the same thing for reserve study specialists.   As she mentioned there are only 24 licensed reserve study specialists now in Nevada and the law is different for reserve study providers.  

    She asked me to remind you to make sure to renew your licenses before they expire even if you have not taken the classes.  You can send it in with a letter stating you are working on the classes, because of the COVID-19, with the payment and follow up with the classes when offered for them to marry up.
     

  2. The financial class is scheduled for 6-19-2020 at 9:00 a.m. until noon to give those who need it the 3 hours of financials.   Gary Lein, CPA will also be briefly talking about the new conditions that are expected to go into effect soon, which will require the financials managers give you to be different.   You will have to look at the liabilities to see the money in reserves, etc.   I will keep you up to date on WHEN and IF these go into effect, but he will provide a set of financials for you to look at to see how they will look.   I will send the link to the class as soon as it is set up, but wanted you to mar5k your calendars.

Date: 051520 ...  Statute Booklets and Southern Nevada Water Class for directors.                      

  1. I just ordered 500 more of the 2019 statute booklets and won’t be printing any more after this.  If you would like me to put a hold on some for you now so that I can let you know when they are ready, please do so now.  Because of a smaller order, however, the cost is $10.50 each now instead of the $9.95 before.  Just let me know ASAP.
     

  2. As you know, we are in a serious drought mode and we need to get the info out to our directors and Committee Members.  The 2 hour class that the Water District has now is on Zoom so that there is no rushing to find the place for directors. 

 

      Please let me know if there is an interest and I will set up a date for them to teach the class.

Please read this article by Mark Coolman regarding issues that might arise in HOA's as a result of this virus outbreak.  article

 April 2020 

Date: 041820 ...  CAMEO CE Class May 1, 2020 via Zoom Conference                                                   

Please find attached a flier from CAMEO that has a link to sign up for their ZOOM class being held on 5-1-2020.   If you are a Supervisory CAM and or a Provisional, this is a recommended class as a lot of Supervisory CAM’s are not doing what they are supposed to do in training the new personnel for this industry.  The pre-licensing classes teaches them what is required by law, but the Super needs to help them over the 2 years to understand our industry and to help prepare them.   Many Provisionals come to me and expect me to help them since their Supervisory CAM isn’t doing it.  I don’t mind helping some, but I am not the person responsible to train them. Link to Flier

 

Here is the link that shows all of the other ZOOM classes you can join now that classroom style classes are prohibited.   http://red.nv.gov/Content/Education/Calendars/CIC/   With ZOOM classes, you can sign up in the north or the south and attend (if there is room on their platform.) Many of the providers will take attendees in either the North or the South first so that people don’t get locked out when they are being taught in that area.  In other words, sign up early to save your spot and you will be sent a link to click on to enter the class.  Make sure you have the right software to attend as well and be prepared.

Although ZOOM has been pushed my many, there are some serious security issues with the software. Other platforms may also be used such as GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar. These software products have been around for some time and are considered safe. They are also just as easy to log on to. You may see some presenters using one of these more common products.

Gayle Kern, Esq. has graciously agreed to teach the classes on 4/9/20 and 4/10/20 so that we didn’t have to cancel them as Michael Schulman, Esq. can not be there.   They are both at the Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors at 9:00 a.m.   Here are the two classes:

 

1. This is an NACM sponsored class so you need to work with Lara Garrell at larakgarrell@outlook.com

2. This is a class that I am putting on as Directors and homeowners were upset last month that NACM does not allow them into their manager classes, which is their policy.  I am doing it for free and you let me know if you wish to sign up.  It has manager credits as well and is a really good class. Gayle Kern, Esq. continues to see major problems as directors are not dealing with issues soon enough or prepared for new issues.

Sorry, but this flier was provided right after my blast yesterday.    This class really is important if you are a Supervisory CAM or will be shortly.   Supervisory CAM’s are getting in trouble with the NRED for not doing what is expected of them by the NRED.  Please come here what is expected and Provisionals are suggested being here too so that they can see what they should be doing over the two year Provisional period. ....

  1. There are a lot of classes coming up over the next few months.   NACM, and if you are a member it is free, is holding one that John Leach, Esq. will be teaching and the flier is attached.  You sign up with Lara at NACM as shown on the flier for the 3-19-20 class. .... Link to Flier

  2. Just so you know, the NRS 116 statute books are gone.  This is the first time they have sold out so fast.

  3. The NRED says that you can renew your license on line now. 

  4. Please remind your boards to sign up for the class on 4-10-2020. I will be up there helping NACM with a class on 4-9-2020 taught by Michael Schulman on Sociopaths, even thought the NRED wouldn’t let me call it that.  Board members, and managers, can attend the 4-10-2020 class on Older Associations with New Problems. It is a really good class that gets board members to understand that they can’t defer maintenance and that even new associations can have major issues.  You sign up with both of these with me, please.

 January 2020 

Date: 013120 ... Reno Reserve Provider Class Yesterday                                                                       

Thank you for those of you who signed up for the Reno Reserve class yesterday, I thought it went well and your credits have gone into the NRED for those of you who need to renew ASAP. 

 

I will see some of you this afternoon at the LV class, but wanted to get a feel for future classes.  9501 Red Hills Road in their club house. Parking on the street in front is allowed if the parking lot is full.

 

In Las Vegas, there will be two financial classes taught that you can get credits for the financial class you are required to take.  March 5th is Financials in the CIC and March 10th is Budgets and Reserves I the CIC.  You contact Key Realty Schools if you wish to take those and pay $20 to them for the classes.  They are both at 5:00 p.m. at 3320 E. Flamingo, which is on the NW corner of Pecos and Flamingo. 702-313-7000

 

If, however, some of you would like to have a class in Reno vs. coming to LV, I need to get a feel for how many that would be so that I can talk the instructor into coming up there to teach it.  Also, which class?  Budgets and Reserves might be the most relevant to what you do.  PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP so that I can get it working now.

 

I promised the attendees that I would try to keep you in the loop with any changes on forms and NRED possible actions more in the future.  The forms have changed and change frequently, so if you think you have down loaded it and have it, you might be looking and working from at the wrong form.  Here is the link. http://red.nv.gov/Content/Forms/CIC/

Date: 012720 ... Pre-Licensing Classes starting on 2-4-20  ... May be Cancelled                               

Unfortunately, unless we get more people for the classes on 2-4-20 for Key Realty Schools, they won’t be happening this spring. We need at least 20-25 people. If you are holding back to pay as late as possible, please let me know that you will be signing someone up so that they are not canceled. I have attached the schedule again as some of you have signed up for CE credits as well as part of these and I would hate to have to cancel these as well.

 

If you don’t hear from me otherwise, the classes will continue, but I need to get at least 10 more people to move forward.

 

Also, the State of Nevada Contractor’s Board gave me some of their latest books for looking at licenses, etc.   Their newer books won’t come out until later in the year.  Please let me know if you want some as they are free.  I can bring them to classes I am sponsoring, etc.  or get them to you company when I deliver the 2019 statute booklets that you ordered.  They should start popping out next week and I will e-mail you when it is your turn for shipping, deliver or pickup.

Date: 011920 ... Class on March 13th at 9:00 a.m. - Statute Booklets                                                 

 

New Class:

 

I have a new class called Short Term Rentals from the Insurance prospective and Ron Wright helps me teach it. I created this class when I started thinking about Henderson allowing them, but Green Valley Ranch does not.  My son rented an AIRBNB within Green Valley Ranch when they came to see us and with two handicapped children using their children’s play area and the pool, I wondered what would happen if there was a claim because they were not even an invited guest, but rather AIRBNB. 

 

It is free and will be taught at WRSS&R’s office at 3556 E. Russell Road at 9:00 a.m.   Please let me know if you would like to attend.

 

2019 Statute Booklets:

 

The statute booklet will go to the printer on Monday and I need to know how many to print.  They are printed in a still bound format, but are 8.5 x 11 as the coils binding the books no longer are big enough.   The price reduced some, however, because of the size and will be $9.75 plus media rate shipping. Please let me know how many you want to order so I don’t have tons sitting around that I don’t need.  I don’t make a profit on the books so that means that I take a huge loss each year if I order too many.

 

Pre-Licensing Classes:

 

The pre-licensing classes start at Key Realty Schools next month on 2-4-20.  Just a reminder if you have someone who will be looking to take the classes.  I have attached the flier that shows the dates, times and the ones that have CE credits attached as well. Class Schedule

 

Nevada Law Class:

 

There is still room for the class being held at Peccole Ranch on 1-31-20 at 1:00 p.m.   It is a new class for reserve study providers and the law.  When we taught it the first time, both the managers and reserve providers learned a lot from each other so it is important to have managers there for this class.  It is fee and you see me to register.

Date: 010820 ... IMPORTANT 2019 Statute Books and classes                                                               

Couple of things:

 

  1. The 2019 Statute Booklets should be out in 2-3 weeks and I need a count of how many to print.   I am taking orders for the new books in the order I get them.  I won’t know the cost until I get them printed, but they should be less this time as I am printing them in an 8 ½ x 11 format as the coils can’t be made any larger.  They should be less than they were last time, which was $10.50 each plus shipping.   Please let me know IF you want any.
     

  2. NACM has a good class being held on 1-30-20 at 9:00 a.m. at the Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors. It has not been taught up there before and is on Capital Improvements.   The NRED actually asked me to put it together since they feel managers are not grasping this concept and are allowing boards to use reserves inappropriately, etc. for these new projects.  Gayle Kern, Esq. is teaching the class. The flier is attached and you can e-mail Lara to sign up.  It is free to members.
     

  3. At 1:00 p.m. on 1-30-20 at the Reno Sparks Association of Realtors, Donna Zanetti will be teaching a law class on reserves for reserve study providers and quite a few will be there to get their law credits.  The class in LV went VERY well because there were managers in attendance letting the RSS attendees know of the things they liked and didn’t like about their side of the industry.  Consider coming to help with that class.  It is free and your RSVP with me, please.

Please find below the NACM schedule for the first part of the year   The class in January in Northern Nevada was one that the NRED asked me to put together as they don’t think that managers understand the issue well enough and need to understand the issue surrounding Capital Improvements and when reserve money can be used, when owners need to vote, etc.  Contact Lara up there to RSVP and save your spot, please.   Remember it is free to members and membership is only $60 a year  I have attached a membership application for those of you who want to consider joining to save on CE costs.  I hope you have a great 2010.

 December 2019 

Date: 123019 ... New Traffic Laws in Nevada                                                                                              

New traffic laws in Nevada has some significant changes from current laws. Please be aware of these changes. See attachment.

Date: 121819 ... Class on 4-10-20 at 9:00 a.m. - Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors                                   

Many of you,  as board members and homeowners, wanted to attend the class that was recently held by NACM, which was just for Community Managers.  It is about Older Association with New Problems, which is funny as older associations includes some of those under 10 years old, unfortunately.  The attorneys want to make sure that you don’t overlook some items as they are critical to the financial health of your community.

 

I booked the Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors for the above day for directors and managers who could not make the original class.  This class will be taught by Michael T. Schulman, Esq.

 

Please let me know if you will be there so that I can save your spot.  I am copying managers on this as well so that they know this class will be held.   CE,0386000 2 Hours General.

Date: 121319 ... New class for NACM and new location                                                                           

For those of you who didn’t get the flier, there is a really good class being scheduled for January 23rd by NACM at the Orleans.  The NRED wouldn’t let me call it the Psychopath class and made me change it to Dealing with Difficult People, CE.0390000 General Credits.  Please see attached, the flier for the class, for who to contact, etc. as there is a new cancelation policy that goes into effect January 1st.     Thursday, January 23rd at 9:00 until 11:00 a.m. at the Orleans Hotel and Casino in the St. Charles Room A at 4500 W. Tropicana Ave. 

 

Members of NACM get in free and it is $30 for nonmembers.  Joining NACM could save you a ton of money as all classes are free once you are a member in the upcoming years. 

 

I do wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!

Date: 110619 ... Very Important Class ... Older Associations with New Problems                           

I am really surprised we don’t have more people signed up for this class as it is one that the attorneys really think you need to help your associations out of trouble.  It is a new class and has not been taught up there before.  I will be attending.

 

I have attached the flier, but it is about associations and things that they are not proactively taking care of in their communities. Older Associations with New Problems  - CE.0386000 2 hours General Credits.

 

I actually had to teach it in Mesquite Nevada as Schulman had a problem and it went over very well for directors as well.   It got them thinking.  We could teach it next year to your directors if you have an interest after attending the class.

Date: 110619 ... Very Important Class ... Older Associations with New Problems                           

There are so many things that board members,  and at times managers, don’t think about as association’s age.  Gayle Kern, Esq. wanted me to put this class together some time ago because of issues she keeps dealing with on associations.  We are not just talking about OLD associations, but some as young as 10 years as well. 

 

On 12-6-19, NACM will be teaching the two hour class from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  I helped teach it in Mesquite last week and directors were allowed at this class.  They finally got it as the materials were covered.  Sign up with Lara at  Larakgarrell@outlook.com  - Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors.   Hopefully, this class won’t be canceled as the 11/15 had to be.  RSVP as soon as possible, please. Class Flier.

 

If you find the class helpful, we would be happy to teach it after the first of the year to your directors as they need it too.

 October 2019 

Date: 100919 ... Very Important Class                                                                                                          

I wanted to get your opinions as well, please.  Two more CE classes are scheduled up there before the end of the year  and I am concerned about attendance.  I will be flying up for both as they are critical classes, but can change my plans if there won’t be a good attendance.

 

  1.  11-15-19   10:00 a.m. – Noon - Short Term Rentals for the Insurance Prospective – Ron Wright and I taught this in Incline Village recently and the room was filled with questions from the managers and some directors.  They had serious concerns about what was discussed. Link to Flier

  2. 12-6-19 – 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Old Associations with New Problems – Gayle Kern will teach this and helped put this together because of what she keeps seeing in the older communities. 

 

Please let me know if there is an interest, based on the dates, as they are both really good classes and want to be able to get as many of you there who have an interest.  Because of the two Holiday’s during those months, we want to do what is best for YOU!!!!!!

Date: 100819 ... SB 117 - Removing Discriminatory Restrictions in the documents                        

Recently a legislative update was held at the Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors and they discussed SB 117.  At the time, there was no form out to use for this purpose in cleaning up those discriminatory documents.  Now there is and the link is shown below by the NRED.

 

Most of the more recent documents shouldn't have discriminatory language in them, but older ones “might”.  The Ombudsman’s office recently let everyone know that there is a form now to record that will remove such language, Form 655, declaring those provisions as void.  You should probably talk with legal counsel in doing so since I think the intent was to get it out of the documents completely if it forbids or restricts the use, conveyance, encumbrance leasing or mortgaging of such property to any persons based on race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, familial status, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. I don’t think it would take a vote of the owners to comply with state law.

 

Here is the link:
