  4. Last and not least, I have attached a flier you can use to help me collect the aluminum soda can tables for Ronald McDonald House. When I take them in I always say that they are from the HOA industry so that we at least get some kind of positive recognition in this industry.  Let me know when you have some or need a collection jar like the one I have attached a copy of.  It keeps people from having to touch the jar and to quickly contribute.  Flier   Container

  1. Do you really look at your water bills and compare them to last year's bill for the same period? Unfortunately, I do and this last month we were charged for 55,000 gallons where we only used less than 8,000 last year at this same time last year and we were out of town for 3 week this bill current billing cycle so …….  I contacted them and they admitted to making a reading error.  All readings are done online and someone sure made a big typo.  If I hadn’t contacted them We would been paying almost 7 times what our bill was.  Please look at the association and your personal bills and compare to last year.

4. Two fliers attached on the Commission meeting on 9-13 – Please get active with your boards

and homeowners - The Commission on Common Interest Communities and Condominium Hotels (“Commission”) will consider new regulations regarding Health, Safety or Welfare (“HSW”) violations at an upcoming workshop on September 13, 2022, at 9:00am.  The new regulations impose strict limitations on what can be considered a HSW violation and also cap HSW violation fines at $5,000.   Please note that currently there is no monetary limit on the amount of a HSW violation fine, but the fine must be commensurate with the severity of the violation and consistent with the association’s governing documents.  Notice of Workshop   LCB File R129-21

 

It is important that you review the proposed regulations and plan to either testify at the upcoming workshop or submit your comments to the Commission.  This should be done even if you previously provided comments when the regulations were first proposed.

 

LKG urges you to consider your community and how these regulations would affect your Board’s ability to maintain property values, ensure the quiet enjoyment of your residents, and maintain a reasonable level of civility toward the Board, your community manager and other contractors, and among residents. We also urge the Board to consider whether these regulations indeed clarify for you what constitutes a HSW violation or further confuses the issue.

 

A copy of the proposed regulations is attached.  However, for your convenience, certain key sections are reprinted in blue text below. Please pay particular attention to the yellow highlighted phrases and consider their impact. 

 

Section 2 attempts to define what can be considered a HSW violation. First and foremost, please note that damage to property, no matter how precious or valuable, can never rise to the level of a HSW violation. Keep in mind that the maximum fine for a non-HSW violation is $100.  Considering other sanction options, many of your CC&RS limit the amount of time the Board can suspend membership privileges to 30-60 days, on average, assuming the Association has amenities where suspending privileges would constitute a “sanction.”
 

2. A violation of a provision of the governing documents of an association poses an imminent threat of causing a substantial adverse effect on the health, safety or welfare of the units’ owners or residents of the common-interest community if the violation, without limitation:

-

(a) Involves a lack of care or neglect which directly and immediately places one or more units’ owners, residents or invitees within the common-interest community in danger or direct threat of being harmed; or


(b) Is an intentional act which has the potential of causing immediate bodily harm to one or more units’ owners, residents or invitees within the common-interest community.

 

Under these proposed regulations, if a resident’s dog mauls and severely injures another resident’s dog, it is not a HSW violation. If an owner, in a drunken rage, takes a rock and beats on the body of two vehicles parked on the common element parking spaces causing thousands of dollars in damage, it is not a HSW violation.

 

Under these proposed regulations, intentional acts must have the potential of causing immediate bodily harm.  In other words, if a resident yells racial slurs or hangs a noose from a tree in his neighbor’s front yard or torments a fellow resident for having a developmental disability, it can never be a HSW violation because there is no “bodily” harm.  These same actions can, however, be a Fair Housing Act violation, for which the Association can be held responsible if it does not take those enforcement actions authorized under its governing documents.

 

Section 3 focuses on what is NOT a HSW violation.

3. A violation of a provision of the governing documents of an association does not pose an imminent threat of causing a substantial adverse effect on the health, safety or welfare of the units’ owners or residents of the common-interest community if the violation consists solely of:
 

(a) Using vulgar, profane or abusive language.

 

(b) Voicing opposition to, or support for, any matter affecting the common-interest community; or
 

(c) Any act committed by a unit’s owner, tenant or invitee of a unit’s owner or tenant which is:
 

(1) Permitted by this chapter or chapter 116 of NRS or any other applicable federal, state or local law, regulation or ordinance; or
 

(2) Considered to be a nuisance pursuant to a provision of the governing documents of the association.

 

Under the proposed regulation, profane or abusive language – no matter how foul and no matter how often repeated – can never rise to a HSW violation. Further, no conduct described in a nuisance provision of your governing documents can ever be a HSW violation.  Read your CC&Rs.  Most HSW violations are, in fact, addressed through the nuisance provision of your CC&Rs. Although this appears benign, it is not. For example, if a resident ignites fireworks during a period of high fire danger in violation of the nuisance provision, that is not a HSW violation. If a resident allows the condition of their unit to deteriorate to an extreme degree by allowing excessive weeds and plant materials to accumulate posing a fire danger or allowing trash, debris and other refuse to accumulate so as to attract vermin, both in violation of the CC&R nuisance provision, that is not a HSW violation.

 

It is our understanding from discussions with the Ombudsman that this is the version which NRED wants the Commission to adopt.  Without your participation by testifying at the workshop or submitting written comments prior to the workshop, this version will likely be adopted.

 June 2022 

Date: 062022 ... Class Notice & If you have not done so already, this would be a good article to send to owners. 

​​​​​

  1. On 7-15-2022 at 1:00 p.m. a new class on Banking Fraud will be taught on Zoom for the first time.   It is a 3  hour general credit class taught by Chuck Balacy, Ron Wright and Gary Lein.  CE.0478000.  Let ME know if you would like to be put on the list.  It is a really good and necessary class.

  2. On 7-22 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. NACM will be hosting my new Contracts & Common Problems class that has not been taught before.  The attorneys that I talked with, and others, all agree that this is a much needed class as the problems they see in contracts are huge.  NACM will be hosting it at the Orleans Hotel and Casino, but you can let me know if you want to be put on the list and I will coordinate with them.

  3. The attached article should be sent to owners as our water situation is really serious.  Lake Mead has never been that low and owners AND Associations are not taking it seriously. Maybe putting it in our newsletters and posting on websites would help.

Just a reminder of the Pre-licensing classes that will be taught on Zoom this fall. (link) The pre-licensing classes start on September 20th with Key Realty Schools for both the North and the South together.

 April 2022 

Date: 042722 ... Do you want classes to continue on Zoom?  Read this, please & look at the other two messages. 

  1. The NRED has audited several of the recent CE classes on Zoom only to realize that managers are not turning on their cameras and paying attention to the class. The Division has stated that cameras are required in order to receive CE credits. With phones now, there is no excuse not to have a camera on even if the PC you are using does not have one. Course presenters are equally as guilty as many do not require cameras be on and do not check that people are actually present AND PAYING ATTENTION. What course presenters and managers are doing when they don’t comply with the Divisions requirements is having the NRED consider doing away with Zoom classes now.  PLEASE find a way to turn your camera on during these classes, be visibly paying attention AND put your license number in your signature as the reports that have to be kept afterwards will then show that information should the NRED ask and audit. Please don’t be one of those responsible for doing away with these convenient and time saving classes.

  2. Ed Song, Esq. will be teaching the new NAC class regarding Directors on 5-13-2022 at 1:00 p.m. on Zoom.  You sign up with me and it is a new class with 3 hours of Nevada Law CE.0469000 CAM 
    Invite your directors as well as it is important for them to understand.

  3. To check on other CE classes, please go to this link and sign up with those shown.  https://red.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/rednvgov/Content/Education/Calendars/camce.pdf

Unfortunately, the Reno pre-licensing classes will be moved to Zoom  and conducted during the LV classes.  SO sorry that we have to do this, but 4 people just isn’t enough for over a month of travel time for me and several of the instructors.  Sorry.  

They will all be conducted on Zoom and here is attached the schedule for that purpose. There are CE classes mixed in as well and they will be on Zoom for you to get CE credits too for already licensed managers.

Key may be sending anyone who signed up a separate e-mail as well, but wanted you to have this schedule.

Date: 042022 ... Classes and Other Information                                                                                          

  1. For those of you who have not taken the CE.0445000 2 Hours General Financial Workshop – AB 356 on Water and Turf put on by the Southern Nevada Water Authority, Gary Lein, CPA, Chuck Balacy and Rob Forney, you need to consider taking the class.  I am taking the reservations and it is on 4/21/2022 at 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.  on Zoom
     

  2. On the www.hoasupport.com website, there is a new article that the City of Henderson asked me to put up on there about draining pools as people are doing it wrong and individual owners in the properties get fined too for doing it wrong as well.  Please share with your boards, homeowners, etc.  The link is on the right side under quick links down under “Henderson Pools.”  It was a real mess when it happened in my little gated community, street sweepers had to be called and fines were levied
     

  3. On 5-24-2022 at 9:00 a.m. CAI will be hosting Budgets and Reserves with Gary Lein, CPA CE.0128000 3 hours general credits.  It is in person at Desert Shores CA.  CAI will be taking reservations at Christina Snow info@cainevada.org
     

  4. I have a new class that I am trying to get the attorneys to confirm a date soon, but it is NAC 116 regarding directors, not managers, but has 3 hours of law credits for managers.  This will help you to help them stay out of trouble by attending and getting them to attend as well.  I will be blasting it out when I have it set so that you can share the notice. It will be on Zoom and taught by one of the industry attorneys.

 

I just wanted you to have these to mark your calendars and let the people teaching the classes know ASAP so that they can plan accordingly.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

  1. Just a quick reminder that when you sign up for a class, please, please, please give us the name that is on your current license vs. the name you might be using on your e-mail signatures as well as your license number. You have 10 days to make a change of name with the NRED that you may be using and you could get in trouble.  The way the NRED finds out is that you give us your name and license number and we therefore don’t have to look it up, which is a good thing UNLESS you give us the wrong name.  The NRED then comes back to us with the problem and reminds us to tell you that you are only to use the name on your license and if it has changed, you have 10 days to notify them.  I don’t want you to get in trouble with the NRED. PLEASE………..
     

  2. Just a reminder that most of my blasts go up on my website along with new articles, notices, resumes and job openings.   Here is the link and one important one is included as well as there are serious issues with the drought.

  3. The water rates will be going up considerably next year and you need to be able to take this into consideration as you work on your budgets for next year.  The Water Authority is raising its rates as the article shown on the article on www.hoasupport.com but who knows how much the local municipalities will be raising theirs as a result of these increases too.
     

  4. The Southern Nevada Health Authority will be increasing their rates as wellSee the attached

Date: 032222 ... Couple of NEW classes & Arborist Recommendations for Turf Removal and Serious Concerns for Established Trees.       

Just a reminder about the removal of turf that is required.  Don’t let the SNWA run out of money before you do it.   Here are reminders about things that can happen during those changes from a knowledgeable arborist:
 

TREE ISSUES – Protecting Established Trees During Turf Removal!

  • Don’t Turn Off Watering the Turf and Forget About the Trees!

  • You Won’t Necessarily See an Immediate Effect on the Trees But You Will Eventually See Them Suffer and Potentially Die if Left Without Water for Too Long a Period of Time Especially in the Summer Months.

  • Turf conversion projects should occur in cool season months, with regards to mature trees that will be affected by the conversion (i.e., the Late Fall or Winter Months When Many Trees are Dormant and Therefore Less Sensitive to Short Term Loss of Irrigation.) Definitely … NOT IN THE SUMMER MONTHS!!

  • "Trees can be put under a great deal of stress when a change to their environment occurs.  When a plant is stressed, it’s left vulnerable to secondary insects and disease infestations.  All these factors can lead to further decline and possibly premature failure. To generalize, yes dormant trees will have the least shock in response to a change in the environment like turf conversion. Also Moisture loss from tree leaves is usually lower and, therefore, the need to replenish water will be less in cool seasons."
    ... Many thanks to David Hines, 
    Assistant District Manager, Certified Arborist WE-12741A, Davey Tree Expert Co., david.hines@davey.com. for his most valuable input on this matter.

Date: 031522 ... PLEASE - Take a minute to read the 3 messages below as all are important.       

A. Help for people conducting classes:

- It is really important that you read the full message when you get a message about a CE class, please.  I am not alone when people conducting these classes get frustrated because the managers don’t include their license number and the correct name that the NRED has for your license on record, not the name you casually go by daily. Also when a message has a couple of classes listed, please respond to the person shown on the form with the actually class name, not just that you want to sign up.  They don’t know which one you want.  

- Reading the whole message will show you who to contact if you have any questions or it at times has the links as well. Save everyone the time vs. just responding to the person you got it from.

 

B. Fall Pre-Licensing Classes

- Now that the Spring classes are completed and newbies are taking the state’s test, etc., it is important to start thinking about the fall pre-licensing classes. Reno only has 4 people who have stated that they will be taking those classes this time so far and so they may have to wait and Zoom into the LV classes that start on September 20th and will be in person at Key Realty Schools.   

 

C. One of the reasons that the Commission had on their recommended regulation changes to limit the

number of Provisionals that a Super could take responsibility for was because they feel that the Supers. are not doing their job.  The 2 years that the Supr. is responsible for the Provisional is a training time as the pre-licensing classes are restricted by the statutes on what can be taught.  That means that the Super has 2 years to further train them in this industry.  I continue to get a lot of questions from Provisionals who claim that they can’t even get ahold of their Supervisory CAM. You can see why the Commission and Division are considering this restriction.  PLEASE…..  There is a class facilitated by Lara Knipmeyer-Garrell on 4-7-222 at 9:00 a.m. for 3 hours that EVERY Supervisory CAM should take or have taken.  It will really help the industry as there are not enough Supers to go around.  Her e-mail address to sign up for this3 hour class larakgarrell@outlook.com – CE.0373000 General.

 February 2022 

Date: 022822 ... I have a new class that is being taught on 3-2-2022 for managers (for credits) & board members to help eveyone understand the issue.   

The class is on Being Proactive with Landscape and Tree Maintenance – CE.0454000 General and will discuss the issue of trees and landscaping now with mandatory removal of turf, etc.   It is a really good class to help understand the necessary care of trees and landscaping before it starts having pest problems, diseases and dying.  It is being taught by an arborist, Kurtis Hyde, who knows his stuff.   Please let me know ASAP if you wish to attend.

 

I also have the Non-owned and Hired Auto class on 3-4 at 2:00 p.m. which is one hour.  CE.0422000 General – A lot of people wonder why you need this insurance in an HOA when you don’t own any vehicles or rent them out as well.  Good class taught by Brian Berg who is a good educator on insurance.   Let me know if you have an interest.

  3. Please see below CAMEO’s invitation to their Spring Fling Event below. They will have a Breakfast Bar Buffet, Raffles and more.  See below and registration link after clicking on the following link: Event Flier Link

I am trying to get a feel as to whether I should cancel the in-person classes in Reno for the Pre-licensing students.  I have 7 Reno area students in this February class and it concerns me that I may not have enough to do the classes in August and September.  

 

Please let me know if you have students who will be attending in person up there as I take a month out of my life to come up there to make sure they get the education they need to manage and love doing it.  I have CE classes mixed in as well and would hate to have to cancel those too.

 October 2021 

Date: 102021 ...  Important Information ... PLEASE READ! ... 2 Messages!

  1. Just a SERIOUS comment about class registrations.  The Supervisory Manager class was hosted last Friday and we had 71 people signed up. How many people do you think actually showed up for the class without formally canceling their registration?  33  - I don’t think  most of you understand the work that has to go on behind the scenes to host a Zoom class with all the pre and post work.  We know it is easier for the managers to take the virtual classes, but the host and person responsible for the NRED requirements work has doubled.  PLEASE be courteous and let the host know if you can’t make it AND get that evaluation completed and back to them within at least a couple of hours so that the host can FINALLY be done with all of that extra work required. PLEASE.  Don’t mean to be a pain, but it is important for you to understand.  

  2. Transition from Developer will be taught on Zoom on 10-19-2021 at 5:00 p.m. on Zoom  - Key Realty Schools $20 702-313-7000 (But let me know if you as I have other handouts. )

  3. Resales & Disclosures will be taught on Zoom on 10-20-2021 and we will be discussing the new changes in the laws in that area.   CE.0088001 – 3 Hours.   5:00 p.m. Key Realty Schools $20 702-313-7000 (But let me know if you as I have other handouts. )

  4. Just a reminder of Zoom board training on 11-17-2021 for new board members. Or those who would like to attend.  They sign up with me.

All of the below are on Zoom: 


1.      CE.0373000 – 3 Hrs. General - For those of you who have not taken the “Are You a Good

Supervisory CAM ”, it is the second class on Supervisory CAM’s and the things that they do wrong and/or should be doing during the 3,120 hours and 2 year period.  It will be held on Thursday  October 14th at 1:00 p.m.  So many Provisionals don’t know what their super should be doing for them and the Supervisory CAM’s are leaving the “learning” to the boards and or their assistants. Totally a problem.   I really recommend that the Provisionals take the class too. Here is the link to sign up for the class with Lara as Norm and I will be teaching it and Lara facilitating.  FREE   https://myemail.constantcontact.com/--Are-you-a-good-supervisor---.html?soid=1134781727224&aid=X2H0f3_W3mM 


2.      Since the law requires that directors use the latest Robert’s Rules of Order publication, which is

#11,and Robert’s Rules does allow the body to make their own rules and we will discuss a rule. The class on January 12th  is at 10:00 a.m. and is  recommended for directors to take.  The class does not have manager credits and is 2 hours long, but we really recommend that directors take the class to stay in compliance with NRS 116.  They sign up with me and I will give them a certificate of attendance at the end of the class as proof that they got education in this area. FREE

Date: 070121 ...  Couple of Important Issues ...                                                                                         

  1. On July 13th  – 11:30 at the Gold Coast – at the CAI luncheon Gary Lein, CPA has been asked to address the federal changes on the reserve accounts and your financial statements “ 606”.  Sign up for the luncheon to get your questions answered. He and several other speakers will be covering reserves and financials discussing important information.   You sign up with CAI at this link and I understand that Chris said that she has free tickets at a vendors table if you ask for them.   https://cvent.me/WYAqlo  - Registration is open until Thursday night at 5:00 p.m.  I really recommend that reserve study specialist go as the financial statements are starting to be totally different now not only in Nevada because of this Federal change.

 

  1. On July 16th, the Architectural Committee class is almost full.  It is at 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.  and Ed Song, Esq. will be teaching it to help you proactively stay out of trouble with this committee since it is one of the top 10 reasons for litigation in the HOA’s. If you reserve a spot, please let me know if you can’t be there so I can get others into the class. You sign up with me.  2 Hour CE.0415000 Gen credits

 

  1. When you sign up for Any class, make sure to include your license number, please.  It really helps all of the class providers be prepared for you and save a LOT of time. Some of you go by other names than are on your license and the forms that have to go into the NRED and your certificates of attendance need to be what is on your license with the NRED.

 

Hope you had a good 4th of July Holiday.

 June 2021 

Date: 063021 ...  Important Information - Water and Classes                                                               

  1. If your association’s have not got their “unessential” replacement of grass in place, they are making a huge mistake as I understand the $3.00 rebate for per square foot could go away soon.   With the deadline of 2027 for replacing “unessential” grass, boards should start now to get as much as they can in rebates.  I have attached an RJ article about this whole issue and note that it talks about this possibly going away. DO IT NOW.  There are limits, but some is better than $.00  - Make sure all of the directors see this article as it will help them understand.  SNWA Article

  2. If you just recently got your Supervisory CAM license, it is important for you to attend a class that helps you not get in trouble for not doing your job.  It is this Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. and you contact Lara Knipmeyer Garrell to sign up even though it is my class. larakgarrell@outlook.com CE. 0373000 – 3 hours general credits. It has only been taught twice before as the original class was not renewed and this one is better.

  3. The Key Realty Schools pre-licensing classes are scheduled to start on September 7th and will be in person and on Zoom.   I have attached the schedule with the dates, but signing up now helps us determine if they will go forward or not as we had to cancel the Reno classes this Spring because of attendance levels.  Fortunately, those few students who signed up in Reno can get the best instructors to help them learn with this schedule.   The one thing you need to be aware of in advance is that cameras and active attention are required by Key Realty Schools for all Zoom classesPhones are not preferred, but can work as long as the student can be seen paying attention and they can hear.   We will work with the students in the North to have the 2 tests proctored up there.   Sept 2021 Schedule

  4. Architectural Committee’s and their use – CE.0415000 – 2 Hours general   7-16-2021 at 1:00 p.m.    This committee cause this area to be in the top 10 of insurance claims in associations.  Ed Song, Esq. will teach the class and help you understand proactively to do to ward this off.
