As discussed in our last blogpost, the near future will likely bring many cases of homeowners unable to pay their assessments in a timely manner. As such, many boards may be looking at a moratorium on the collection of delinquent assessments, as a way to help homeowners catch up.
In an effort to assist those who are considering a moratorium, we have drafted a sample Moratorium Resolution here for your use. Please note that this is a SAMPLE resolution only. It may need revising to fit your particular association’s authority and/or your board’s decision on what specific collection remedies will be included in the moratorium.
Also, keep in mind that whatever action you take with respect to assessments today, in reaction to the virus, may have a severe impact on the association’s financial state several months from now. Boards need to make a reasoned decision and look not only at today’s financial circumstances in light of COVID-19, but tomorrow’s financial health. If you are considering waiving late fees/interest, or extending payment plans or the period of delinquency before sending over to collections, or any other type of moratorium, be sure to consult with your association’s counsel first.
Stay tuned for more COVID-19 blogs to help you navigate the new virus world! And, in an effort to make it easier for you to find COVID-related resources, we have installed a temporary COVID-19 Resources area on our website for easier navigation.
