Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is your purchasing policy and do you charge extra for making purchases on behalf of the Association?

A. Gold Crown does not charge an additional fee ("up-charge") above the actual invoice amount. Gold Crown has the supplier bill the Association directly and the Association pays the supplier directly. It is not untypical for other companies to have the supplier bill the Management Company, then the manager invoices the Association with an additional handling fee (up-charges) for the benefit of the manager.

Gold Crown will obtain the best possible discounting by dealing on a volume basis with suppliers, such as pool chemicals.

Q. Do you have additional service charges above the cost for postage, photocopies, faxes, collection letters, additional mailings or placement on Gold Crown web site for Association information?

A. NO! For example some management companies will charge an additional fee, such as .02 cents for each piece mailed, over the actual cost, sent on behalf of the Association.

Q. Do you have a list of preferred vendors?

A. Yes. Gold Crown has been providing professional management to Associations for nearly twenty years. We understand our responsibility is to provide only the best proposals from qualified contractors and service personnel who are properly insured and licensed, to our Associations' Board of Directors for review and final approval.

Q. If our Association hires Gold Crown Management, what is its authority?

A. Gold Crown has no authority (neither does any managing agent), except as conferred by the Board of Directors.

Gold Crown does not make decisions, it implements the decisions of the Board of Directors. Gold Crown assists the Board in its decision making process by means of providing "Information-Gathering" and "Fact-finding Support".

Q. Why do Homeowners have to pay Association fees?

A. The governing documents for the Association set forth the responsibility and requirements for the obligation of the members to pay assessments (fees). Fees may be due annually, quarterly or monthly. These funds provide for the operations and maintenance of the common property (and limited) and are used to provide for the benefit of all the Homeowners.

Q. What do our Association fees cover?

A. The Governing documents define this question. Generally fees pay for such categories as landscaping, repairs and maintenance; pool care; play grounds; tennis courts; parking areas; equipment; administrative functions; insurance; replacement funds; emergencies and all other operational, accounting and property expenses.

Q. As a Homeowner, what am I responsible for?

A. "Read and comply with all the governing documents". Maintain my property (condo) according to established standards. "Treat Association leaders honestly and with respect."

"Vote in Association elections and other issues." Pay Association assessments on time.
