HOA Loan Basics

When faced with expenses, homeowner association boards may find their current income and reserve structure insufficient to meet the community’s capital needs. Although HOAs can mandate a lump sum special assessment, often this is not the ideal solution. Many HOA boards turn to loans to fund their large capital projects.

A community may respond adversely to a special assessment or perhaps the funds cannot be collected soon enough to address an issue that requires immediate attention. Whatever the reason, boards may need to turn to lenders to raise the capital they need. Arch Capital Solutions can help HOAs acquire the capital they need right away.
