Prepare the Reserve Study update your association needs

In order to budget responsibly and avoid Special Assessments, associations of all shapes and sizes should prepare a Reserve Study. All association-governed communities face major repair and replacement expenses of their common area assets: roofs will develop leaks, painted surfaces will peel & roads will require resurfacing.

A Reserve Study identifies and budgets for these future expenses & provides three key pieces of information, useful for both annual budget planning and disclosure purposes:

  1. The Component List: The component list details the scope & schedule of all Reserve projects.
  2. Reserve Fund Strength: A percentage calculation comparing an association’s Actual Reserve Balance to its Fully Funded Balance.
  3. The Funding Plan: A custom 30-year funding plan detailing Annual Reserve Contributions, avoiding Special Assessments when possible.

Associations that adhere to our recommended Funding Plan have adequate funds on hand for timely repairs and replacements, and fairly distribute these costs between current and future owners.
