News and Announcements

Condo owners and HOA managers in the Land of Lincoln should take note. Illinois House Bill 189 was signed by Governor Bruce Rauner on August 24. The law adds several requirements to the Illinois Condominium Property Act and while the law doesn’t take effect until January 1, 2018, it’s best to get prepared now. Here are a few of the changes and how FRONTSTEPS HOA software can help you stay compliant.

My neighbor is moving.

His partner died a few years ago and he’s been living all alone in his big, beautiful house, his voice echoing in the grand entryway. This summer, he decided it was time to downsize. A new family is moving in and all the neighbors are planning a dual farewell-welcome brunch for both parties. (I’m bringing banana bread.) In places like Miami, London, New York, and California, however, this Hail and Farewell routine isn’t always the case.

Summer's in full swing. That means clouds of sun screen and swimming pools packed to capacity.

During one such picture perfect Virginia Beach pool day, the scene came to an unfortunate halt, when pool-goers began to complain about feeling like they were getting shocked. Thankfully, pool managers acted quickly, cleared the area, and called medics. With some thorny issues to tackle, including communication, injury, accountability, and follow up, the HOA took control.

Big questions as the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season ramps up. The National Hurricane Center reported four tropical storms already, and while none made it to hurricane status, they're saying it's going to be a busy season. That means the possibility of disaster and disaster recovery. It's why South Carolina, Rep. Mark Sanford is taking action now.
