Cleveland Condo Association in Search of Assistance

Dear Mister Condo,

I’m looking for recommendations for a property management company and/or a company to perform a reserve-study. I’m in a medium high-rise building (60+ units) in the Cleveland, Ohio area. Any help is appreciated.

Mister Condo replies:

A.B., kudos to you and your association for seeking a qualified property management company and a Reserve Study. Great community association governance begins with a solid plan and a great team. As you know from reading my column, I am a solid supporter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) and their members as they are the folks who bring you the best practices for community association governance. If your association isn’t already a member, you should consider joining. In Ohio, you have three local chapters but the Cleveland, Ohio region is serviced by my friends at the Northern Ohio Chapter of CAI. They have a website at My best advice for you is to use their contact form at and tell them you would like a list of local credentialed community association managers and a list of Reserve Study providers. I didn’t see any local events for you to attend listed on their website but I would ask them about that as well as I know they host educational seminars from time to time where you could not only educate yourself but also network with similarly minded folks and local industry professionals who are sure to want to offer their assistance. Thanks for the question and good luck!

  1. Our Board has not opened our pool on time in 5 years. I told them I will hold my HOA fees this year if not open by June 1. I came here for the pool. What can I do?

    1. You can only ask that they open the pool sooner. Do not withhold your HOA fees or you will be fined or worse. You must pay your HOA fees on time. Good luck!
