We know — the weather just turned warm, but it isn’t too soon to start planning for fall. Condo associations have responsibilities to the property as the weather starts to cool and we slide into winter.
The landscape is common property and is the responsibility of the association. Clearing leaves, trimming plants, and giving the lawn the final mow before winter are all fall chores the association will have to take care of. If these chores will be hired out, it’s a good idea to secure a vendor now.
As the summer draws to a close, air conditioning maintenance might be needed. Storm windows and doors will have to be put up in common areas in preparation for cooler weather. Drains should be cleared of fallen leaves. The condo association should have a plan in place for building maintenance and schedule vendors as soon as possible to complete these chores.
It may seem early, but a little early planning will keep your association from fighting with other homeowners to get on the schedules of popular vendors. And if a plan is put in place sooner rather than later, it will help everyone living in your property ease into fall.
