A Transition Study's Purpose

The purpose of the transition study is to provide a due-diligence service in determining the condition of the association-maintained components in relation to appropriate standards before the HOA accepts ownership from the developer. Transition studies include descriptions of defects or deficiencies in the construction and will provide estimates for correcting the issues discovered. Quality standards may consist of provided construction documents (building/site plans), building codes, material manufacturer installation recommendations, and other industry standards.

We specialize in working with community associations and property owners in problem-solving, repair/maintenance planning, pre-purchase due diligence, and cost estimating. We work with hundreds of community associations each year, including large-scale property owner associations, high-rise condominium properties, townhome communities, commercial owner associations, and non-profit entities. Services include reserve studies, transition studies, construction administration consulting, stormwater pond inspections, and engineering consulting.
