Happy Condo Association manager using CHOPAS community portal

Eliminate ALL Your Condo Association Problems with this 1 Simple Solution


You know you need a condo association software solution, a community portal, but you either hate change, are technology challenged or have a tight budget (or all three). But the pain is getting unbearable to keep avoiding what you know must be done.

frantic condo association manager who has not learned about CHOPAS community portalEvery day is filled with tight schedules getting tighter, managing vendors who need to reply to issues reports, and responding to residents and owners who keep calling and coming into the office – taking more time away from your busy day. If that weren’t enough, you have parking permits to deal with, your owner’s directory isn’t current so there’s grid lock at the gate, and you still have a pile of security forms to file. By the time the day is done, you are NOT done – wishing you had an extra two hours in a day to fit everything. No wonder you leave with headaches and have restless sleep!

Then there’s the Board of Directors, who keep asking for a solution that makes them look good and their jobs easier, and doesn’t break the budget. Sooner or later, “I’m working on it…” isn’t going to placate them anymore.


Salt on the Wound: Florida Requires Association Websites

state of florida sealAdd to this debacle that Florida passed laws (718.111 and SB398) which state that condo associations and homeowner associations need to have an association website by January 1, 2019. But not just any website, it must be able to do certain things or your association would not be in compliance.

It must make the following PRIVATELY available, and ensure each member be only able to view his or her own messages and posting, and no one else’s.

  • All governing documents, to include the declaration, articles of incorporation, bylaws, CC&Rs and every amendment that has been made to any of them.
  • A list of every executory contract or document (still waiting to be executed), as well as a summary of any open bids.
  • Current and pending budgets.
  • Annual financial reports.
  • Information on your board of directors, with each member’s certification document, any contract between them and the association, and any declarations of conflicts of interest.
  • Supporting documents for consideration at unit-owner and annual general meetings, at least 7 days prior to the meeting.
  • Board meeting Notice, Agenda and supporting items pending votes, at least 48 hours prior to the date of the meeting. The Board is expected to redact or withhold any information not intended to be accessible to owners.
THEN, it must be made PUBLICLY available:
  • Meeting notices for unit-owner and annual general meeting, 14 days prior to the meeting. This info must be linked from the homepage or listed on the homepage under a section titled "Notices."
  • Association's estoppel designee. "Each association shall designate on its website a person or entity with a street or e-mail address for receipt of a request for an estoppel certificate issued pursuant to this section. The estoppel certificate must be provided by hand delivery, regular mail or e-mail to the requestor on the date of issuance of the estoppel certificate." This change was passed under SB 398: Estoppel Certificates, and applies to Statutes 718 (condos), 719 (co-ops) and 720 (homeowners associations).

Now you have a fixed deadline, the Board is becoming impatient, time’s running out and you don’t have enough time in a day – catch 22… or is it?

What If You Could Have A Perfect World?

What if there was a condo association website and portal that took care of BOTH situations for you?  A solution that would help you take control of your day, save you time and allow you to organize everything simply for easy access.

What if you could take all the issues you struggle with and instead of having a bunch of loose ends metaphorically duct taped together, you could crosslink everything pertaining to an inventory (home, condo or unit) item? This way, when you needed the information, it would all be there easily and simply. At the board meeting, you could answer ALL their questions with your smartphone.


  • Who the owner is
  • Any issues or requests needing resolution
  • A history of all past issue resolutions
  • ACRs
  • A history of tasks and repairs
  • Who received a guest parking permit and when
  • Being compliant with Florida laws
  • And much more!


What if your Board of Directors were SO HAPPY with the system, when a new member or board were elected, you could get them up to date quickly, simply, easily and accurately?

What if it not only took care of all the things you were pulling your hair out over, but ALSO made you compliant with the new Florida laws? Plus, it made you look professional and helped you enforce all rules and regulations, with no more forgetting simple things that could become huge fires to put out.

Finally, what if it were simple to implement and learn, had support that is second to none and fit your budget comfortably? Would this be a perfect-world solution?
