BASELINE PAC was founded organically after noticing the lack of available help for the average person when it came to property related issues. The original spark that started our cause was a small twenty unit condo complex in distress.
The board for the condo association consisted of an CPA, Attorney and Businessman, all of whom had very limited knowledge of building, construction and maintenance. They contracted a property management company to handle the day to day affairs, manage the books, and keep within rules and regulations of the state and within their baylaws.
They approached the founder of BASELINE PAC as a friend, asking to have some additional input on a special assessment they were looking to levy over the owners for some repairs that had been long overdue. On the table sat three bids, all ranging from $150,000 to $170,000 for the remedy to the issue the buildings were facing – deteriorating siding. After careful consideration and review, an alternative, relatively new method was suggested to achieve the same remedy.
This method was not considered by the board or the property manager, and might have resulted in each co-owner footing a $7,500+ bill – something the retirees (that comprise the majority of the complex) would have beenn forced to pay.
Furthermore, if the Condo Association had yearly assessment by an inspector, they might have avoided the situation altogether. Most of the water infiltration was due to poor application of paint, and improper caulking and sealing. Had the buildings of been painted properly a few years prior, water likely would not have even entered and damaged stucco siding!
At the end of the day, the condo association relied on three board members to do their best job of maintaining a comfortable neighborhood, with retaining property values… the board members in turn relied on the property manager to do their best to achieve that, and somewhere down the line there was a less than ideal situation as result. The board members did a great job in their capacity, the property manager did their job within their capacity, but a neutral, third party is what it took to save tens of thousands of dollars.
