Let’s Play the HOA Blame Game

Can you get all 5 questions right?

Below are recent incidents from 428 Alice in Oakland, CA that is managed by The Helsing Group.

QUESTION 1:

Your building has NO hot water for 4 days in the middle of winter.

Who is to blame?

  1. The Helsing Group

  2. 428 Alice Board


QUESTION 2

Your building is fined by the fire department for taking over 6 months to fix emergency stairwell lighting.

Who is to blame?

  1. The Helsing Group

  2. 428 Alice Board


QUESTION 3

Your building has a homeless person living in the boiler room.

Who is to blame?

  1. The Helsing Group

  2. 428 Alice Board


QUESTION 4

Your building has no dumpsters below the trash chutes and trash has been accumulating on the floor for weeks.

Who is to blame?

  1. The Helsing Group

  2. 428 Alice Board


QUESTION 5

Your building has an elevator that’s been broken for over a week.

Who is to blame?

  1. The Helsing Group

  2. 428 Alice Board


The correct answer for ALL of the above is... 428 Alice Board


Your HOA Board is entirely responsible for maintenance of your building. If they hire an HOA Management Company to oversee the building, this does not absolve them of their responsibilities.


You’re probably thinking The Helsing Group was fired... Nope. These 428 Alice Board Members recently gave them a raise!
