CHOPAS Community Portal Websie Developers
 

ATTENTION Website Developers!
New Florida Laws State Condo and Homeowner Associations MUST Have A Specific Website by Jan 1, 2019


 
 

CHOPAS Makes It Simple for Web Developers to Meet Association Expectations!

Time is running OutDid you know that the state of Florida passed laws that mandate condo associations and homeowner associations must provide a website for its owners by January 1, 2019, where they can access certain information easily? And as Florida goes (when it comes to community associations) so goes the rest of the United States – eventually? Information like:

  • 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.
  • And more!

This has made community and property associations frantic, trying to figure out how to comply – with time running out. Some have tried to see if using a Facebook group would suffice, but it doesn’t. Others have tried landing pages with links to documents, but it fails the mandate.

You see, community associations must have a site which allows each owner to create a private account, where they have access to all the above mentioned and more, and be secure enough to ensure privacy for all. The temptation is to create a standard membership website, right? However, it would not meet the rigorous standards in play by the laws 718.111 and SB398.

In the Past…

Until now, developing a site that conforms to Florida Law and meets owner usability, would require a major project. That may require lots of resources and time, be overly expensive or unaffordable to the potential client.

Well, if it’s too expensive, since the owners must approve it because they pay for it, do you really think they will approve an increase to their fees? Probably not! This major obstacle makes it almost not worth the effort, as one may have to go through so many associations to find one willing to buy. The lost time is lost money!

But What If…

Happy CHOPAS userWhat if you could offer a cost-effective solution you could turnaround in a reasonable amount of time, which owners would not reject because it was so affordable, allowing you to gain more customers and earn higher profits?

What if your website helped condo associations, homeowner associations, community associations and property associations not only legally comply, but ALSO made their jobs simpler – adding HUGE benefits they never expected? How much value would that add to your offering?

Imagine if you could provide a website that eliminated the day-to-day issues most property associations struggle with – and you didn’t even have to develop it! Even better, you would create your standard website and the integration of the platform were done for you – making your turnaround time even faster.

What if you could go back to your existing property-management clients and address their needs by simply integrating login to their new community portal – saving you and them time and you earned a nice profit for little work?

You would be able to say YOUR website will allow them to:

  • Access their solution when and where they need it, since it sits in the Cloud as an SaaS platform.
  • Manage Board activities, so everyone knows what’s going on
  • Organize all their files and documents for easy access when they need them
  • Organize events on the Community Calendar so all owners, residents and guests know what’s going on and when
  • Let owners report a problem
  • Create To-Do lists and assign them to the appropriate group(s), so nothing falls through the cracks
  • Make sure deadlines are met
  • Keep the community in the know about changes, events, meetings and more with News and Announcements
  • Get community alerts via email and SMS
  • Conduct community polls to get the pulse of association members
  • Stay on top of community issues and provide timely resolutions
  • Maintain an up to date owner information directory
  • Send e-mail and text alerts with reminders
  • Manage facility scheduling of common areas
  • Manage parking violation forms and ARC notices
  • Streamline guest permitting online, avoiding car bottlenecks at the gate
  • Deliver presentations
  • Track property issue resolutions
  • Connect all relevant documents, photos, communication, etc. to the property (item in inventory) so when information on a particular unit is requested, EVERYTHING having to do with it is in one location
  • Access it from any browser on any device with no need of an App!


 

“We found CHOPAS while it was in beta while searching for a HOA portal product. Customer support previewed the product and I found it easy to setup. I showed it to an HOA Board and got approval quickly. I expect that CHOPAS will increase the longevity of our website customer base and improve our bottom line.” Drew Ogden
