Managing a property correctly includes having GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) accounting. Accrual accounting. Without this method – a client, whether they admit it or not, is operating somewhat in the dark and certainly without vision or all the information necessary for good financial decisions. Beacon does all the general accounting any property needs such as coupons, collections, lock box, reports, etc. Almost any management company can do these simple tasks.
Builder Developer Services
Our Developer Services Division ideally starts during the mapping/development phase of a new community – prior to the recording of the governing documents. The experienced Beacon team reviews maps, documents and initial plans to identify potential problems the developer may experience. This early involvement allows management to gain a better understanding of the entire project, including land characteristics, product offerings, sales projections and association involvement.

Tenant Tracking and Compliance
Over the past few years, there has been a major increase in renters in condos and HOAs, in part due to the surge of investors buying in community associations. Although, many associations have a process for collecting information on leased units, it is not uncommon that the records may be incomplete or inaccurate for a variety of reasons. Not knowing who is leasing – whether legally or illegally – exposes the association to greater risk and liability. If the Board believes it is important to have this information and control in the process, then it makes sense to implement a structured program that ensures compliance to the greatest extent possible.
