Officially The Deadbeat List is Dead & for Good Reason

Officially The Deadbeat List is Dead & for Good Reason

HOA | Condo Board Responsibilities and Education, HOA | Condo Communication

 Every community has it's share of problem owners, from the ones who refuse to follow the guidelines and complain about every bylaw to those who just can't make their assessment payments on time. It can be a frustrating and endless cycle for many board members, but it has never and will never justify the use of a "Deadbeat" list. In addition to having never been an effective way to encourage on-time payment, it's also legally and morally troublesome. Shaming your owners is just not an effective way to handle any situation.
