First-time buyers in condo associations, co-ops, and other multifamily residential com-  munities are often surprised—and a bit confused—by the way in which their new build-  ing or HOA operates. Whether they are coming from a rental background or a single-  family home experience, condo/co-op living, and its administrative and governance   structure, differs dramatically from both. In a condo, you can’t depend on the super for   everything as you might in a rental, nor can you undertake to do whatever you’d like   without any prior approval, as you would in a single-family home.

Running a community association requires boards and managers to work with people   from all walks of life, including those who have unique experiences, wants, needs, and   challenges. That requirement also includes residents living with behavioral or mental   health issues - and thanks to the pandemic and all the chaos and upheaval that came   with it, more people than ever fit that description.
