FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2014) - Volunteer boards and property managers responsible for the operation of condominiums, homeowner's associations and coops will find their jobs a little easier thanks to a new Smartphone app from the Becker & Poliakoff Community Association Law Practice group.
The new "Pocket Condo, HOA and Coop Guide" is now available for free download on iPhone and Android devices. It can be found in the Apple store for iPhones and iPads by typing in "Condominium, HOA, Cooperative Law," and in the Google Play store for most Android devices by typing in "Condominium, HOA, Coop Law."
The app allows residents to search the laws governing their communities using simple key words or browsing the frequently asked questions and answers section with answers provided via video. Board members and managers in condominiums and cooperatives will appreciate the annual meeting calculator, designed to make the strict guidelines for scheduling annual meetings, as set forth by statute, easy to understand and follow.
Other features include the ability to create Board meeting minutes with detailed information about attendance, voting, and agenda items.
"We are committed to providing clients with the technology they need to make their jobs as voluntary board members as productive as possible," said Ken Direktor, chair of the Community Association Law Practice group at Becker & Poliakoff. "Our app is designed to provide answers to commonly asked questions and help clients gain better access to the information they are seeking."
The app is available to the public; however, clients of Becker & Poliakoff can also access proprietary information regarding accounts they have in collections through a client log-in portal.
