The Life Cycle of Your Community

As community association experts, we understand that every community has its own unique life cycle. Using our knowledge of industry best practices, we are here to guide you through maintaining the many moving parts of your community.

Reserve Study + ™

Kipcon is the industry leader in reserve studies. Our founder, Mitch Frumkin, PE, RS chaired the national task force that developed both the National Reserve Study Standards of the Community Associations Institute and the Reserve Specialist Designation. This budget planning tool provides both financial and physical analysis of your community’s common elements and a straightforward plan for their replacement.

The goal of our study is to keep your community adequately funded and prepared for major future replacement projects. If you are currently underfunded, our funding plan starts with your current annual contribution and gradually changes to reach adequate funding.

Wondering if your Community Association is adequately funded?

Transition Studies

Foster a seamless transition from developer to association ownership with Kipcon’s guidance and expertise.

Kipcon’s founder Mitch Frumkin, PE, RS chaired the joint task force between the Community Associations Institute (CAI) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) that worked to create a standard for this critical process, publishing the paper Best Practices: Transition. These best practices are ingrained in our studies, as we review potential defects, provide recommendations regarding the community’s Reserve Study adequacy, and evaluate general conformance with the community’s design drawings.

With over 30 years of experience preparing Transition Studies, we are familiar with the typical problem areas encountered throughout the transition process, and we pride ourselves in making this process as smooth and non-confrontational as possible.
