Reserve studies


Recent changes in State law (H.B. 135) relative to Condominiums and ORC5312 have mandated that Community Associations throughout the State undertake Reserve Studies as a way of determining what constitutes a “fully funded" Reserve.


A Reserve Study is a process by which the physical assets of a Condominium or Homeowners Association are studied to determine when they will need to be replaced, the future cost of that replacement and how much money needs to be put away on an yearly basis to assure that adequate funds are available to replace the assets when they reach the end of their useful lives.

Aries Management Corporation has formed Synergy Reserve Consultants in response to the need to provide in depth analysis of the physical assets and future replacement costs of association capital items such as roofs, concrete, siding, pools and recreation facilities, etc. Synergy Reserve Consultants would be happy to quote this service to your Association, whether or not you are a current client.
