Water, Water Everywhere... and Who Do You Think is Gonna Pay?
by George E. Nowack, Jr.
Water damage is the most common casualty claim in buildings with attached units. Whenever water escapes from a pipe or hot water heater, or an appliance malfunctions or a bathtub overflows, the natural reaction of the owner whose unit is flooded or damaged is: “Someone else has to get rid of the water and repair my unit.”
The Right Way to Take Meeting Minutes
by Rebecca Drube, Esq.
Georgia law requires associations to keep minutes of all meetings of its members, its board of directors, and its committees when such committees are acting in place of the board. While most boards of directors are aware of the obligation to keep meeting minutes, many boards, at one time or another, have faced the question as to what information needs to be included in the minutes to ensure that an accurate record is being maintained.
