Distinguishes between the two types of studies and what impact each may have on an Association’s knowledge of construction defects and the time limits that may apply to defect claims.

How construction defect lawsuits may be avoided by negotiating repairs with those responsible and timing issues critical to the association’s decision regarding the length of these negotiations.

Discusses the current state of the law on timing and other requirements to pass amendments to common interest community governing documents. Advises on best practices and pitfalls to avoid.

Focuses on how the property manager and association’s board of directors can and should handle potential defect issues so as to properly protect the interests of the owners to the extent the association is required to do so. This program provides nuts and bolts tips for effectively managing repair or remediation demands by unit owners before, during, and after a construction defect lawsuit in order to protect the association from liability.

This program discusses the roles and responsibilities of the property manager in the timely identification of construction defects, including how to protect yourself and the management company from liability. Suggestions for setting up a successful investigation by the engineers will also be discussed, along with tips for disclosure and communication during and following a construction defect lawsuit.

All courses are approved by the Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) to fulfill continuing education requirements for the CMCA® certification as well as DORA for CAM continuing education. Each course provides at least one hour of continuing education credit.
