We are fortunate in living where there are several very good proprty managers. We haven't had the problems that Holly describes. It depends on the quality of the management company. It may be better to not have one at all if the alternative is the kind of experience she describes As for the management company hiring people they know, we always ask them to get several bids before we (the board) decide, so that problem doesn't present itself. The board really needs at least one person to oversee everything and to make sure bills are paid on time, work is done properly, etc. The condo I live in has only 17 units and is located near Los Angeles. I realize that cohousing is different than a condo but there are many parallels. I can see that some co housing complexes may be located where there are few good management companies to choose from or possibly none. I don't have a suggestion for such a situation except that the board has to be hyper vigilant and good at management themselves. It might be a good idea to have a real estate attorney who knows the law for condos and co housing to call on when needed. Other than that I send everyone in Co-housing my best wishes for successful management. Louise
